This resort is a complex of hotel, resort, convention center, marina, beach resort, waterfront hotel, holiday retreat, big pool, private beach, free parking, VERY friendly, well trained staff and a bit on the upscale side of decor and design. The wallpaper going up the second floor stairs ( no elevator) looked like bookcases of CD's and contrasted horribly with the garish carpeting. We stayed in the main part of the resort, on the second floor facing the bay east of our small, but nice patio consisting of 2 chairs; but a small table would have been nice. I am not sure how old this resort is; but the section we were in was showing its age, especially in the bathroom. The sink was fractured and poorly repaired, there was a long crack across the floor tiles and 3 drywall anchors remained exposed in the wall next to the sink where something had been installed & removed. The room was a bit small; but nicely furnished and featured one of the most comfortable beds ever. The restaurant has been upgraded; but the menu is limited and more typical of a back country resort versus a big city resort. With over 4000 eating places within 20 minutes or so, they could do a much better job in the restaurant department.
