I've never stayed in a place quite like this before. You walk in, and you can walk right through the hotel to the back resort area. Pseudo thatch-covered huts, nice pool, outstanding beach. You go outside to get to your room, which is compact. There were five in our party, so we got the double bunks and a king (or... More

Our family enjoys coming here every summer. The white sandy beaches with the option of sitting around the pool listening to DJ Jim play music is awesome. The theme of the hotel was built on the idea that it is like a Cruise ship, where you never have to leave the property. They are entertaining everyone with music, activities, and... More

We stayed the week of July 4 with our son and his family. We had adjoining rooms so that the grandchildren could roam freely. Having the full-size fridge in the rooms is wonderful. The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and each room faces the beach. Ours also overlooked the pools and part of the kids play... More

We come here with the kids once a year. They are 4 and 6 years old. They love the pool, kiddie area, activities, movie night, pizza stand, ocean, and everything else.

This is my second year at this resort and we had a blast. It is so very hard to rate this resort as a whole. The hotel rooms are old, worn, and dirty! It really upsets me to pay what they charge for these rooms when I know whoever owns this property could spent the money for a reno and... More
