My husband and I stayed here for a long child-free weekend. We had a wonderful time. I had booked our stay through booking.com but when we were shown to our room it was clearly very different to the room shown on the website. We returned to the front desk where we were informed that the room shown, and the one... More

I have stayed at the resort every year but one since 1998. Never have I ever seen the beach so pristine and the staff so attentive. While the pool is average, the rooms are well above average and the beach and grounds are outstanding - as is the staff. It seems that the resort has upgraded the cleanliness of everything... More

The property itself was average looking, the beach was excellent and our room was excellent. We had 2 deluxe ocean view rooms- 3207, 3307. Our family met up here for a week in July. We had 8 people- 1 kid, 2 teens and 5 adults. We had a bit of a wait for the rooms to be ready- after long... More

I get one family vacation a year and booked it at this location. What a mistake! None of the staff takes ownership or pride in this resort, which explains why the rooms are in such terrible condition. The staff either notices the problems with the room and does not report it or management does not care or can afford to... More

LBKC obviously has fans and those who will find fault no matter what. As an overseas visitor we found it to be exactly as expected. Beach front properties can be affected by sand salt and humidity but we did not find it tatty at all. It has fantastic views out over the gulf, the pool area was busy but the... More

I wanted to give the LBKC a 4-star, but our experience on the last day left a bad taste in our mouths. Check-out is at 11, and we asked for a late check-out for 12:30 pm as our flight back home was not until 5 pm. They said they couldn't accomodate this request even thought we spent several thousand dollars... More

Dear D M Thank you for being our guest. I apologize we were unable to accommodate a late checkout on your day of departure. Unfortunately there are many days in the summer, weekend and weekday, where our occupancy is at capacity and we have to also be responsible to our incoming guests. That being said, the resort is available to... More
