The location is excellent and this could a very nice resort but it needs a lot of updating! Very over priced for the condition of the rooms, boats and the grounds.
The room smelled horrible and the bathroom had a strong mold smell and the window wouldn't open to air out. All of the blinds were non functioning so it was hard to enjoy the views...the windows were filthy anyway so even if the blinds would have opened properly it wouldn't have been clear view. I don't think the windows were cleaned in a very long time.
The grounds need updating too. The lawnchairs are old and missing slats and not enough for the amount of rooms they have. The tiki huts have missing thatch and could use some sprucing up. The sand could use raking to even out the surface and tiding it up a little. The palm trees need trimming to remove the dead branches.
The boats are pretty old. They are not really free because you are charged a minimum gas fee regardless if you use any and can only use for 4 hours at a time. The boats have to be in at 4 pm so you are very limted with the use...not sure if they stay open later during the summer.
The restaurant: Very limited "included with stay" breakfast. Very nice waiter! Dinner menu not my preference. Would have preferred a place to grab a burger and tropical beverage while enjoying the views, beach and pool.
Very nice pool and hot tub area.
The entire staff was very nice and helpful!
Overall COULD be a very nice place but don't think we will be back.
