This was our second time to the resort, which has changed substantially since we were last there eight years ago. We wanted a quick getaway to recharge and we read a lot of negative reviews about the staff, the rooms, the restaurant, etc. which made me nervous. I can honestly say, those fears were quickly put to rest and we...

Visited with my fiancé. We had a blast! The ocean was just lovely and the pool was fun. The food was just ok but that's to be expected for the deal we got. Overall a fun time and we would go back! The room was sufficient, the bed could have been more comfortable, but our mini bar was always refreshed...

Sharing the...

A friend and I recently stayed at this hotel for our vacation and it by far did not meet our expectations for great customer service or variety in food choices.
