Great resort. The only issue I encountered is everything you order at the restaurants is charged to your room. It helps not having to carry cash or credit cards but it’s hard to keep track of your spending.

Loved, and would come back!
It was amazing and the staff was so lovely! The only complaint may be that the pool area got way overcrowded the last day - but it’s also a family friendly resort with a lot of kids so what can you expect!

Very pleased with our stay at this resort. The harbor side had an amazing view. We watched the sunrise from our balcony and the dolphins entertained us.In the evenings we walked to the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. everything you need is right on the property. Several restaurants and beautiful pools including one with two waterslides. Would definitely recommend and plan on going back and the future
