      The resort is okay. Definitely needs to be updated. Our room had a mildew smell to it, and the staff wasn’t very professional. Called a few times with questions, or stating the people above us were way too loud stomping at 11pm, which we were advised to call the people above us directly to tell them to quiet down. Beach was nice, but other than that, not worth the money.

      I loved the view from our room! I didn’t like that our room wasn’t ready until 2 hours after check in and that one of the pools was under construction and we didn’t know until we arrived.

      The property itself was very nice and clean. The condo was dated and dusty.

      The view from the balcony was awesome. We actually saw dolphin one morning. It was very relaxing sitting on balcony. The only eye sore was the unfinished pool below. Customer service was excellent. The only downfall for our family was the limited beach access. You must rent beach chairs from private company to sit close to the beach weeks in advance. Both sides of the resort beach access is other resorts access. So you are really limited to where you can sit on the beach.
