I booked this resort on the reccomendation of a friend and was happy with the facility. I could only count 12 rooms being occupied as this is a vacation rental where you own the suite and choose if you want to rent it when you are not using it. It did seem odd that there was so much emphasis on making a huge lobby with perfect decor when there was very few people around. Maybe its busier in the summer? Our room was fantastic, two bathrooms, each witha shower, lofted ceilings and an ocean view. The kitchen was perfectly outfitted and while we didnt use it much, would be great if you like to cook your own meals while on vacation.
The complimentary gym passes were well worth it, this was by far one of the top athletic facilities i have ever used! Well worth the 5 minute drive down the road.
The resort is located at the far end of the beach past other resorts in the area but the beach is rocky, if you like sand castles, you will need to walk a bit down the beach. One thing that needs improvement is the lighting as you drive in, the sign has small writing and isnt eay to see, in addition the entrance road was very dark, the lights on the trees were out! This resort is evolving and it may address these things once construction is done.
Dont get me wrong, the accomodations were great and this is a very nice facility. We will go back
