I think it's more couples-friendly but there were definitely kids around the pool. The bars/restaurants are geared more towards adults. I went with my husband and was very happy with the atmosphere.

If we want to save money on parking, we have found using Uber or Lyft to be more economical than a tax or driver. Freebeachride, as noted above, may also be a good service to check out! Enjoy your time here :)

Are the private cabana rentals worth it? for $200?
We mostly walked along the shore, but to hang out all day it could be worth it given how crowded it can be.

"Suites are definitely worth it"
"Ask for a higher floor to minimize the view of a beach parking lot"
"All rooms have an ocean view and balcony but would request a room that is away from the beach/parking lot side of the hotel."
"Ask for a room with sea view"
"Higher floors but all rooms face outward"
$307 - $770 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
