I stayed at the resort with my husband and 3 kids over the July 4th holiday. The location was fabulous. We loved that you could step off the patio onto the beach. It was less than a ten minute drive to the boardwalk. Even though it was a busy holiday and the hotel was sold out, it was quiet by... More
