My family stayed on December 31st of 2005. The lobby was very well decorated and the staff made us feel welcome. But that was about it. Very limited on Services. Actually none at all. Not even beach chairs and the poolside chairs were limited. The pool was clean and not that cold. The hottub was very hot and big enough... More

When we first arrived in the lobby we were a little dissappointed by the looks. When we checked in we found that they did not have us in a suite facing the ocean. I have come along way to look at a parking lot. The rooms were okay, but if I had my infant son with me would not have... More
