Every member of the staff was phenomenal! I was staying the weekend with my two sons ages 9 and 11. The property was beautiful even after Hurricane Matthew. We weren't sure if the resort was going to be able to support our event but every thing was on point! I cannot wait to visit this resort again only this time...

I would have given 5 stars if we could have had a better view of the ocean. We were on the fifth floor and had an enormous tree we could practically touch from our terrace. Needless to say , we were not able to see much else , not even the pool directly below us. We could hear the fountain...

If you are looking for a place to disconnect and park yourself poolside or on the beach, this is it. The rooms are not fancy, but adequate and well-kept. The grounds are lovely. The pool is pristine, the lounge chairs are abundant and clean and the outdoor cushioned seating areas are a nice feature. It's a short walk over the...

A little pricey, and "resort fee" added to bill. This seems to be more and more common and is just a way to increase the bill. Room very nice and check in was efficient. Easy, free parking. Breakfast not included but the restaurant off the lobby was very good.
