Amazing pools and beaches! There is a trolley service that will take you around from the resort, which I thought was great! The rooms were nice, definitely stay on the 3rd or 4th floor if you want to see the ocean-the views are beautiful. The only downside is the balconies are not private-you can see straight through the dividers to your neighbor. You have to reserve your beach setup ahead of time if you want to be in the first or second row. Great place overall though! I would recommend.

We had such a nice time and the staff was amazing. We honestly never saw cleaning staff but each time we came back it was like cleaning elves had come and left us cookies. The rooms were bigger than I expected and my family of 4 never felt too crowed Even with an 11 month old.

Beautiful resort and pool facilities. Staff was excellent, as were the cleaning staff. The only thing that could use some work for the upcoming summer season given the covid crowd is the ordering system at the pool bar and the chair issue at both pools. They need additional staff to deal with that amount of crowding at the main pool. To get a tea or food you have to wait in the same line as everyone waiting for drinks. Hire a few extra bartenders and 1-2 waitresses. Yours are overworked and struggling. Camp watercolor was outstanding! 5 out of 5 for families.
