Nice resort and helpful staff. Bayfront rooms get a lot of noise from the restaurant/bar. We were as far away as possible, and the noise kept us awake. Room service menu could use some work. They seem to cater to business groups and not for relaxing couples

Hotel's Favorite
A fabulous experience from beginning to end, and I cannot wait to return. Isaiah at check in was fantastic; our room was sparkling clean + spacious; hygiene throughout the hotel was outstanding; the pool was refreshing; A&O Kitchen +Bar was lovely (ate there twice, and Johnny took excellent care of us both times). Thank you for running such a wonderful property. Everyone deserves to be commended for delivering a topnotch experience.

The hospitality was amazing, everyone was nice and welcoming. The cleanliness brought a comfortable experience and the gesture of a complimentary wine made it much more enjoyable. Front desk were very professional and welcoming which made the rest of the day great.
