I could not have asked for a better experience. The service was great and the food was incredible. I would highly recommend the snapper! It is evident that much care and thought is put into the dishes. Perfect flavor and presentation! Bravo!

And were very disappointed. The quality of food we had experienced over the last 28 years was not evident last night. So sorry that this lovely place did not live up to my expectations.

Enter the restaurant from Front Street or from the boardwalk seaside. This restaurant offers fine dining with a tropical atmosphere for a reasonable price. The food quality is excellent and the service is tremendous. They even make a hamburger seem like a gourmet meal.

I cannot find the map that I had of the resort but if you contact the resort and make the request, they will attempt to accommodate. I believe that most of the studios that are near the beach are also near the bar area... More
