Yes the room rate was high but you get what you pay for. This is a self-contained resort, with a beautiful lobby and on lovely grounds. What you get for your money is value. Excellent accommodations, excellent service and some nice touches that make guests feel welcomed to justify cost. Complimentary services that I experienced: pool and beach towels, ongoing drinking water at pool, beach chairs, lobby and pool Internet, health club (and wow it really is a nice one), fresh fruit in health club, bottled water upon hotel arrival, 2:30 cookies and lemonade each day, sample bar drinks offered in lobby.
Our family has high expectations and we were very happy at this resort. Yes the food is expensive, and the drinks are too, again this is a resort and doesn't even compare to the Sheraton next store or some other nearby hotels we popped in to visit.
Of special mention: Sally and Marquis in health club. Both very professional and friendly. Natasha on the beach- friendly and helpful. Concierges very willing to help and friendly. Staff at pool very friendly and helpful. Pool area very clean.
Areas of improvement- staff in lobby needs to be more aware of guests that are in the lobby and public hotel areas in bathing suits and bare foot. There is signage about this but didn't seem to be enforced and this guest behavior diminishes what an upscale hotel should be. I witnessed this over several days, in many different parts of the hotel. Some guests just don't have any class.
A wonderful stay, lots of kids activities, tennis courts, basketball court, ping pong and very fun! And a very large attractive heated pool too.
