This was my 3rd stay at this property. It has proved to be hit or miss over the years. This time it was great because of the staff. We had our 3 grandchildren with us and decided the convenience of the Gold Floor was worth the extra money, the constant availability of drinks and snacks made our life easier, and the staff on the Gold Floor made our stay fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely Elizabeth, and the kids loved her. At the beach shack there was a lovely woman named Rose who took us all out in a catamaran and taught us how to weave palm fronds. The beach staff were happy to inflate the kids toys and very helpful.
Once we found just the right restaurant on the property for eating with 3 kids under 7 that went smoothly too, I recommend the beach front hale kai, the waitstaff got the kids meals out fast with a smile. The house keeping staff was great, they let you pick a time daily for housekeeping and that works so well for us.
I had a marvelous massage at their spa, ask for Stacey, so relaxing and therapeutic.
A few minor problems with things, the bathroom was Tired, the shower head flopped around, and the shower door didn't close all the way. And the pool was a bit dirty at the end of the day.
I would return for another stay with the kids, the little waveless bay is great for the kids, and they loved all the turtles.
