Great people, great food, great beach, great pool, great rooms, great service! We loved it. Spotlessly clean resort, some beach activities, long beach for walking, lots of opportunities to go off site for other trips. Evening entertainment was a bit amateurish but it didn’t

We had a great experience here. Friendly staff, from bartenders to servers to cleaning to maintenance, each staff member takes the time to say hello, smile, and ask how you’re doing. Many make lots of conversation and love to chat. I especially loved my morning “coffee man” who

There are only two types of rooms: superior and junior suites. The upgrade usually means better location. Yes, the superior rooms are large enough for a family of four.

It should be on at the bars at the resort and if not, it will definitely be on at the mall which is a few minutes walk from the resort.

Don't drink the tap water. Ice cubes are safe as only bottled water is used for them and for food prep.

"Asking for a beach view usually doubles as a quieter room."
"No elevators."
"A lot staff activity on the second floor of the "quiet side"(Doors and cleaning carts banging)."
"If you are an early sleeper, take a beach facing room as the party around the pool area can go passed midnight sometimes."
"quiet part (orange) is good"
$105 - $350 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
