The Franklin D has one of the best kids programs (complete with trained "nannies" we have ever experienced.
That said, the resort property can best be described as "dated" and the furnishings "spartan."
The resort offers a spa program that falls far short of expectations as to massage products, cleanliness, and general location.
The food service is somewhat more than adequate offering a mix of table service and buffet lines. Drinks were quite good and their ice cream is to die for!
Two Beach areas are rather limited but rescued by a long public beach which is directly adjacent.
Staff are extremely friendly and the management staff we encountered were very guest oriented.....
Among a variety of tour choices we opted for an inner tube ride on a fun river and a horseback ride which featured both trail riding and a wild trip into the ocean- virtually bareback. Both were well organized and very well staffed.
GREAT WATER, WARM, CLEAR AND QUITE CALM.
