The property was very pretty. We had a walk-out room right on the beach, so we had a beautiful view. The only complaint is that we could hear the guests directly above us the whole time we were there. We alerted the staff about the noise, and they were great about giving us the option to move rooms if needed. We ultimately just decided to stay in our original room because of the beautiful view.

My husband and I had a pleasant stay. The only negative thing is the bed was too soft for our liking (we have a firm bed at home), but otherwise everything was great!
