Great location! Would stay again!
We had a wonderful stay at the Baywatch Resort. We would happily stay here again! It was a beautiful, like-new resort. We had a room with a fantastic soaking tub and used it every night. Two concerns: first, the pillows are REALLY firm. We are feather pillow users and had a terrible time getting comfortable with the pillow. Maybe having both firm and softer pillows on the beds would improve the stay a bit. Also, because of COVID restrictions, housekeeping didn't enter our room during our stay. That was fine with us, but the wood floors got a little dirty over a 4 night stay. Having a broom, or Swiffer type duster in the room would have helped with this. Overall, the stay was amazing. The folks at the front desk were polite, thoughtful and worked hard to be accommodating given the restrictions in place. We would happily visit again!
