At first impression we were greeted by a very friendly staff. It may be a little older property, but they keep it up and they keep it clean. We stayed at 4 other hotels on the East coast prior to and following a cruise. None compared with this resort. The restaurant was fabulous and worth the wait because of a local power failure.(1 hour) They gave us a cheese tray to pass the time. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The view ( from the 11th floor) of the Gulf of Mexico was fantastic, especially at sunset. Hint. Pay up front for big savings if you don't mind taking a chance, We did.
