We have stayed at this resort for 8 consecutive years. We find the resort; very reasonable, the staff friendly, and the rooms clean. The resort has 2 large pools, a swim up bar, gym, small store, Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Bob's, Double Down Restaurant and a newly renovated casino. The rooms are very large with separate bedrooms and an efficient kitchen.... More

We stopping into eat in the bar area outside. We sat there for at least 10 minutes and while 3 staff stood off to the side and chatted, no one came over to see if we wanted a drink let alone order food. So, we just left and went elsewhere.

My only complaint is that my room needed a paint job. Other than that, friendly front desk staff. Please ride the slide into the pool. Free wifi in the... More

Loved it your at the beach what's not to love. Great staff and very clean. Beds are very comfortable and shower always had hot water. Ac works perfectly. Like the outdoor grills always ready when we needed them. Lots of activities in the courtyard for our enjoyment. Pools are just gourgous. Home away from home.

Needed extra night and we were here before. Still a good value for the money. Nice pool. Short walk to the beach. The casino was closed for renovation but there was one across the parking lot in another hotel. Would return again.
