Nice hotel and resort with plenty of activities
Posted Nov 29, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay here. I didn't love that at check-in, they tried to treat my room like an "upgrade" when I had already paid for an ocean front room, but it's not the end of the world. My room was exactly as I had expected it to me. I did NOT like that we had to either walk for 15 minutes or take the train to get to our room which was in the ocean tower. If you just missed the train, it wouldn't be back for 45 minutes. It was okay, though, as we planned accordingly to avoid being late for things out in town. If we were to never leave the resort, it would be fine, but that's not us. The resort food is very expensive and not impressive so we preferred to venture out for our dining options. The resort fees were wasted on us as we did not care for any of the activity options (too few options of event and available times). The movie rental was nice, but we had to get a new card almost every time we used it because the cards demagnetize if you look at them funny. Parking was overpriced, and you had to pay a daily parking fee whether you left the resort or not. The views were spectacular, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the pools were amazing. I do with they had more hot tubs in more locations. They have adult-only pools. YES!!! Also, for some reason, housekeeping came between 8/8:30 every morning. It was NOT an ideal time, but they were very nice so it wasn't an annoyance as much as an oddity.
