This was my 2nd time staying here and I can't wait to come back. I really truly feel at home here. Our first time staying here we had a dinner catered in our room and an in room massage. This time we reserved a fire pit on the beach one evening to roast s'mores accompanied with a bottle of champagne. All the rooms are good size. The bathtubs are quite spacious. Part of staying at Beach Village you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at Windsor cottage which is only open accessible to Beach Village guests. Breakfast is included, however it isn't much of anything. Very basic. We did enjoy a very good dinner there. What is nice about the Windsor is that it is never crowded so you get personal attention by the servers. The location of the hotel is steps away from town and it's right on the beach.
This time around we brought our dogs. Now we don't travel very often with our dogs and when we do we always make sure the hotels are ultra pet friendly. When making the reservations we were told dogs are more than welcome, beds, bowls and snacks will be set up in the room upon our arrival. That wasn't the case. The individual who checked us in seemed surprised when she saw our dogs and almost appalled and made it a point that we have to pay an extra $300 (which we already knew) and would have to eat in because dogs are not allowed on any of the outdoor areas of the property. And if we wanted to take our dogs out with us we would have to go into town. There were no bowls or beds in the room. Not a terribly big deal but don't make a promise to get the reservation completed. Eventually these items were brought to the room after having to make a call. My dogs are not small, medium size if anything so imagine my surprise when they brought us dishes made for a chihuahua. Dog beds were ok but dirty and old. Next time I will have to bring our own dog beds and dishes. There is a pet room service menu which we ordered from. It actually smelled and looked quite delicious. The dog beach is a close distance so they weren't stuck in the room the entire stay. We also did take the dogs out onto the property. There is the Sundeck area where dogs were welcome. The servers brought a water bowl for them and we were able to get something to eat. My only complaint, it's only opens in the afternoon. We also were able to bring the dogs to the Windsor Cottage for breakfast. So I don't know what the person who checked us in was thinking. There should be a better list of areas that welcome pets so we didn't have to go around and ask if it was ok or the staff should be better educated as to their knowledge of how pet friendly their place of employment is. Also I should mention they do offer pet sitting, which we did take advantage of one evening.
Outside of the pet issue my only other complaints (very minor but sometimes it's the little details), there wasn't daily bottled water and the patio was cleaned (dirty wine glass was left out all weekend).
Overall I love this place, not sure if I will bring my dogs back but I will for sure come back. i love all the amenities...pools, spas, hot tubs, firepits, s'mores on the beach, lots of restaurants and bars and it's super close to town.
