Staff & service were so nice and helpful! Everything was close and you can easily walk everywhere. Beach was so beautiful and clean and everything was perfectly organized! Room very clean!! I just didn’t like the AC too strong in the hallways but I guess it’s something normal there. I will go back again for sure!

This was mine and my boyfriends first anniversary trip. The resort staff were all friendly, with the exception of one man who holds the power of who gets beach umbrellas… grr! Being that it was Memorial weekend the resort was full, however, they did not have enough umbrellas to accommodate their rooms and there were many upset and burnt people, such as us! I can’t physically take the sun touching me without wincing and we used a ton of sunscreen! The property is on the beach but has a few buildings so you might have a minute walk to the beach. We upgraded to a bungalow for the “perks” which was kinda a let down. Adults only “lounge”, consisted of 2 chairs in a little TV room. “Adults” only beach section was never discovered. Adults only pool was nice, had fun there meeting others from around the country. Our king bungalow room needed major upkeep.. the shade on the front window literally broke, and the metal beam holding it up fell on my boyfriend, thankfully he’s okay.. front desk gave us breakfast vouchers for this and sent the engineer to fix it. It wasn’t fixed fully and still didn’t work so we moved rooms a few doors down. The beach bar was great, Jesse is awesome and makes great frozen drinks! Girls at Octopus are awesome. You’re walking distance to many bars and restaurants. All around our trip was great, despite the setbacks, sunburn and falling metal beams, nothing could ruin our anniversary trip together! :)

We've stayed here 5 times and all of them were great except on this trip they upgraded us to the bungalows. It was not really an upgrade. Sure it had a kitchen with microwave but it felt like we didn’t have privacy. The lack of curtains and a rug made your voice echo so we heard other guests conversations and made us self-conscious. The front wall of the room was a large window with the door to the room. The 3 large shades you drew down for privacy left gaps so other guests could peer into your room at night. No room safe. No real closet and the mirror in the room was just leaning against the wall and not hung up on the wall. You could tell this was by design because no spot on the wall had a place to hang it. The room had hardly any draw or cabinet space and the decor looked as if a high schooler drew on the wall (and shade) with a Sharpie. There was almost no counter space in the bathroom. This was by far Not our favorite location on the property and when we come back (cause we do love being there) we will request NOT to stay in the bungalows next time.
