Check in was a breeze and took all of about ten minutes. We were greeted at the doorway by a bellman ready to unload our luggage. The amenities around the resort were explained in detail without taking too much time!..lol. We got to our room in the West Tower (3 bedroom, 2 full bath) overlooking the Gulf and the Bay area. The Condo was a very nice surprise!. All appliances were up to date (GE Profile), granite countertops and bathrooms, very comfortable beds and furniture. There were all sorts of activities for resort members to take part in just a minute outside the back door. A local hotel shuttle takes you to one of two beaches the hotel / resort takes care of. Jet skis, fishing charters, scuba trips, snuba and snorkeling are available just to name a few of the things families can do. All of this does cost you extra and is not billed to your room. Room service was prompt but expensive. There are plenty of stores close by to purchase groceries if one wishes and prices are comparable to Houston prices. We will definately be returning for future stays!!!
