I love this resort staff friendly, clean area, family friendly, ocean view balconies. I think the rooms could use new flooring for the prices and shuttle to different beach without rocks.

Girl at front desk not very helpful. Soured the start of our visit and that is the sole reason for the lowered review. The rest of the staff were very friendly, helpful and professional.

The cost for this place is outrageous for what you get. They don't tell you until you get there it's an EXTRA $25 for the pool which you have no choice but to pay, and then $26 to park at the hotel. The room was SMALL, there was NOTHING included for over $400!!! I was expecting a lovely resort, instead I got a motel 6 and Vivian up front with a horrible attitude. The make it seem like you are STEPS away from the beach. LIES!! you are steps from a campground and ROCKS. You have to drive to the beach. The so called shuttle was not even running. I spent my savings for a girls night with my kids and it was terrible. Huge regret going there.

Arrived without a booking but had searched on Trip Advisor to ensure they had rooms. Was told by front desk person they had no rooms available! So i booked through expedia on my phone and went to check in and told by another clerk they had no King rooms would give us two queens… Asked for manager. Showed them confirmation and was told they were out of standard rooms so would give us a suite for the same price. So I ended up happy just wish their front deak staff were trained a bit better before being left alone! So not a great first impression but after that everything was smooth and we had a good time in a nice room overlooking the ocean

Room smells like cigarettes, waited for housekeeping for an hour, had to walk to desk to get assistance. Man with attitude came in for 15 seconds and sprayed air freshener and walked out. Front desk understaffed, guests walking out with snacks because nobody there to take payment. Man behind desk treating those of us wanting to pay very rude. Tells us everyone out to lunch. Just wait in line behind those checking in he says. People walking out very upset.
