5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The fact that it is in a secluded development made it quiet and also let us use beautiful bike parts going by lakes, house, and golf courses. The property itself is beautiful and wonderfully located

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service

    We arrived at 2:30, check in is at 4 and the room still was not ready. Rooms seemed dated. Bathroom tile had some mildew. Water pressure in the shower changed significantly if maybe other guests were showering at the same time. However the cleaning service was nice changing towels daily. We paid extra for the ocean view room but had awful noisy neighbors on one side and a screaming baby on the other side. The resort fees we’re supposed to be included with our room but the resort still tried to charge us nightly resort fees and facility fees. It was disappointing and not a relaxing vacation.
