Got off to a bad start as proximity request with our widow friends room was not met and the surly attitude of the reception staff at the time did not help. To be fair though the manageress did sort the problem out and we were allocated suites nearly next to one another on the 14th floor rather than four floors apart.
Additionally there were lots and lots of teenagers milling around that we didn't expect (although they all seemed to disappear after our first day and we think that prior to our arrival there may have been some kind of graduation ceremony).We also didn't know that the school break in the USA started at the beginning of June rather than the end of June (Oops!! not very good research on our part). Initially we were so unimpressed that we looked for alternative accomodation but could find nothing suitable at such short notice. When we returned the reception staff had changed and were so polite and thoughtful it was like a different place. We looked at the standard of the suites and were very impressed The Ocean view suites sold the place to us as we thought they were really nicely appointed.
The big test at a family resort for seniors is noise levels at night but certainly on the ocean view part of the complex it was fine. It's quite amazing that within days we 3 wrinkleys had fallen in love with the place.
Room management was quite good but replacement tea/face/bath towels was a bit hit and miss.
Previous reviews have criticised parking however we found that as long as you took things steady, obeyed the notices regards use of lights and right of way and used the convex miirors at each floor ramp the system worked really well.
Facilities at the resort were good especially for families and even at our age we loved the Lazy River.
Beach access was good and the foot showers were novel.
All in all we had a really good time.
