We spent four great days at this hotel. It is only a couple years old and is great. The rooms are nice and the view from the balcony is great. If you plan to go there get a beach view room. It will cost a little more but is worth it. The pool is wonderful with it's lazy river which... More

The property was very nice and clean as was my room. Right on the beach with ocean views from the room. I loved the lazy river in the pool. With the waterfalls it was So relaxing! This property didn't seem as kid friendly as others I've been to.

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, the lobby and all common areas are kept clean and maintained to the 9's. Room was clean, everything functional perfectly. Outside pool, spa and indoor pool were great. Only hiccups were the wait times during Sunday breakfast, we waited 10 minutes for a table, another 10 minutes to be greeted by... More

My husband and I were in town for a wedding, so we didn't get to spend a lot of time at this hotel due to meeting up with friends and the wedding schedule. Which was a little disappointing. The hotel is right on the beautiful beach and also has a great pool with a lazy river. Our room was spacious,... More

The hotel is very clean, comfortable, has great food and the staff is prompt and friendly! The short walk to the water is convenient and food service pool side is excellent when you don't want to go inside to the restaurant. The portions are very large for the kids which is great for leftovers because kids are always hungry! We... More

We came in late April and it was great but this time was even better. The facility is clean, well maintained and decorative but what sets it apart from so many others is the staff. The staff goes above and beyond expectations. From the moment you check in until you drive off the property you are treated like family. Chenita... More

My girlfriend and I stayed a week last month at this hotel. The staff is super-friendly. All employees, from the cleaning staff to management would greet us, and ask if we were enjoying our stay.
