Exquisite experience! This time we had no issues. Front desk staff were extremely welcoming. Kikillian even greeted me by name. Resort is beautiful! Pools are amazing. Family had so much fun. Rooms are sanitized and have sanitized stickers for peace of mind. Rooms are renovated and so spacious! Love this resort for our family. They have Karl Strauss in the same parking lot and a Starbucks right across the street. Beach and outlets are nearby:)

Resort is beautiful! My family and I immediately loved the entrance. We usually stay at the Sheraton but I saw they had a small water park for kids. When we checked in at night, the front desk was okay not as welcoming as I would have liked. Very straight forward. When we received our keys everything is sanitized and sealed with a sticker. Room are spacious and makes you feel comfortable. The lay out is perfect for a family. Pools are amazing. Activities center has friendly staff offering to go activities and towels. We had an amazing time. They have a perfect scenery of the ocean and two pools. I would have given them 5 stars excellent but I was treated 15 mins prior to check out by house keeping to ask when we plan to check out. I felt upset that I was being forced out. It was 9:45am. I shouldn’t be asked that question at all. I will return but I will definitely tell the front desk I don’t want it to happen again. I wished the Activities staffed worked at the check in because there welcoming and amazing customer service. When I went to complain about housekeeping the front desk didn’t show empathy all they said was they were going to let the house keeping staff know.

Our room was immaculate, thank you housekeeping! I loved the sticker closures on the dishwasher to know everything inside was freshly washed and untouched. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms we great size for our family. We travelled with a toddler and he loved the pool area. Most guests were good about masks in public areas and keeping apart while swimming. Very convenient to walk to Karl Strauss brewery for a social distancing meal, great menu as well.
