the employees: employees were very accommodating and went the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction! Penny who drove the refreshment cart at the beach was quick and helpful in recommending menu items. Heather, the bartender made awesome cocktails and ensured that customers had plenty of water on hand,in between drinks! Paula, the waitress ensured a very pleasant evening/dinner. Bellman were very personable and were able to take us down to the marina which was off property. The spa had great services...the massage therapist were awesome.
Food was very good
amenities at this resort were good: pools, snorkeling, fishing off the pier, kayaks, tennis, bikes
lounge chairs were arranged facing the water--beverage and food service available
property spotless and vegetation lush (love the hidden Jacuzzi)
Cons: no view of water from my room---not that this was guaranteed....but after viewing the property on line thought that this was a given.
no one was swimming at the beach...not sure if the waters were too cold (November) or if there was another issue.
my bed was very uncomfortable....way too soft
light switches cumbersome and difficult to operatie
