    5/5 Excellent

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

    The Resort staff were all amazing...from the gentlemen who held the doors open every time we entered the lobby, to the Amazing CAFE with the best views all around! Our Double Queen Bungalow was quite spacious with Morning Sun blocking wood blinds. My 12 & 15 year olds enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub that overlooked the Golf Course, Ocean, & Island. We also enjoyed eating at the Pool Grill that had the same breathtaking view! Simply spectacular!
