Just good, nothing spectacular. Food was alright at best, some stench odor at the buffet and rooms. It was a big group of approximately 15 rooms and almost half could not secure the balcony doors due to broken locks. Towels looked old and therefore I didn’t feel sanitary when drying self after shower.

The property was amazing, however, my room phone did not dial out all week, and bathroom toilet stopped up and could not call anyone had to go to lobby for all requests. Informed them phone does not dial out anywhere but it never got fixed so had to go to lobby everytime I had an issue or wanted to speak to front desk or guest services. Housekeeping was on the ball and had to fix the toilet several times.

First time here and I was not impressed. Beach is overcrowded. If you are a non smoker, definitely do not come here. People smoked everywhere witnout restrictions. Staff was rude. They don’t smile or acknowledge you. I will not come here again.
