Were in town for a wedding at the resort. After reading all the reviews, I was dreading the lanai guestroom that we all got deals on. Getting there was easy on a Thursday. Found the front desk and checked in with no lines! The front desk guy was awesome! I told him I did not want to pay for parking ($20-$30 a day). He looked and typed around and told me I could upgrade for the same price as parking for a bungalow. Sold!
As we drove up to almost the end unit, we noticed our room overlooked the cove! You know that booking.com commercial where the family gets excited about the deal they got for a great room? Yeah - that was us! 2 room bungalow with fridge, Large TV, living room, Kind bed, 2 sinks to get ready and a dining table. The view was of the cove looking west with some palm trees! Hell yes! The room was clean. I know everyone kept commenting on getting black feet. The sand is the biggest culprit! take the shoes off outside and it helps.
So I can imagine this place in the summer - holy geez! No way this could be fun with a million kids and families. Well I guess if you had a cooler with snacks and food and went shopping. It was busy while we were there, but very peaceful. There was a conference and all kinds of events happening, but was still quiet.
We only ate at the Barefoot cafe for breakfast and lunch the whole time and the service was good. Food was decent too. Again, way different that the peak summer reviews. We had a cooler with snacks and beverages. It was nice to put things in the fridge and have cold drinks when needed.
The beach had fire pits. you have to buy your own wood (we brought some), but I imagine that is when they get ya! But well worth it, looking over water with a fire. beach awesome!
Hours before the wedding, some nut job called in a bomb threat and we all had to go to the front of the resort off the main road. it was funny, but stressful. The hotel staff made sure that we all had towels in case we got cold, water and poweraid and even some energy bars. They even gave us rides in carts back to our places. Needless to say, it was was not expected, but they accommodated.
I will def stay here again before and after peak season. Maybe I can get that great upgrade to bungalow! Which, by the way was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Sitting on the patio with the cool breeze says it all.
