I went with my family, wife and two kids (11 and 7). Stayed on the fourth floor ocean view / corner room. View was great and pool was fun. Kelley was great at the pool bar, and she even cried when our family had to leave. Weather started out cool/windy but ended better 75-82 degrees. Hotel could use some upgrades on the outside, but the inside rooms were good size and clean. all staff was great. A bad policy is that they charge the guests of the resort $2 dollars for using a beach chair. For this money per night you should definitely get a complim. chair. Overall good time and liked the beach house rest. the best.
