The beach experience at the club was spectacular. Just bring yourself and you get a great lounge chair and a high quality umbrella. Leave your belongings there and take a break for lunch or even of you want to take a splash in the pool. The food is above average and the service is excellent. I have to boys, 4 and 5 years old, and are average swimmers and they had no problem handling the ocean surf. Explain my one day: staring at the beach in the morning, the sand is awesome; went back to the villa to cool off, drank a beer; went back to beach and stayed until lunch; had lunch poolside, food is above average, drank a beer at the swim up bar; stayed at pool ( most points it is three feet which was great for my children); relaxed on the beautiful sectional couch, drank a beer; got ready for dinner and very meal was not disappointing. This place is great, my parents have had this time sharing for 23 years- never missed!
