Our flight was a late arrival and even though I informed front desk, standard rooms were filled by the time we got in. No problem. We were upgraded for free to a suite on the ground floor facing the slide on the beach by the family pool. We wanted family friendly resort and this being spring break, it was packed with kiddos. Many clever activities, belly flop contest, pirate show etc. Staff could not have been nicer. Housekeeper, Sequoia, brought my son ice cream. I earned a free Shark bite for helping out a sand castle building team. We didn't eat on site, but found two restaurants nearby which we would recommend. Only complaint was the weather...it rained, but hey it's Florida. When I want perfect beach days I now know to go to San Diego.
