I'm not even sure where to start.. We had such an amazing time staying here. I am glad our family chose this location for our quick trip away. We immediately felt welcomed and at home.
Some of my favorite things about our stay was how friendly the staff was, from everyone who worked at the front desk, to the bartender, to the maintenance and the house keeping crew. Everyone spoke to us each time we saw each other. We left on a first name basis with everyone we encountered.
We loved the grab and go breakfast bags, it was incredibly convenience to grab our bags and head to the beach, my kids were able to snack and munch on breakfast when they were ready, and throughout the day.
Our rooms were clean upon arrival, and they stayed clean throughout our entire visit, of course with COVID our beds weren't made daily, but we were totally fine with that. The hotel let us know what to expect on their website before we even booked. We knew what to expect upon booking. I really appreciated that.
Walking to the beach was easy, the beach staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The chairs and umbrellas were so nice to have. The pool area was always clean and kept up with. I loved having the chairs and umbrellas there as well.
The drinks at the poolside bar were so delicious (and affordable!! That was a big deal)! But more important than that, the bartender was so friendly and kind.
Our family was very grateful to have stayed here and we can't wait to get back, hopefully when the threat of COVID ends and everyone is able to open up fully. We can't wait to experience everything this place has to offer (the outdoor fire place, the pool side music, Swizzle Stix, the Movies, ETC). Kevin and his crew are doing a fabulous job making the best out of the COVID restrictions and guidelines.
Honestly, our only complaint was that vacation ended and we had to leave this little slice of paradise. less
