For the amount of money you paid the service should have been the 5 star that it said it was. Check in great- food came very late had to call to find out what was wrong. Beach was nice and respectful for the distancing. Very expensive, so bring a lot of $$.

Location on beach terrific. Bathroom design a little weird. Flooded floor when taking shower as stall floor flowed right into main floor with no edge!

This is a lovely location with a beautiful beach and gorgeous pool. The hotel and rooms are nicely appointed. The staff is friendly, and, helpful. The resort fee covers valet parking, gym, and beach chairs. The food is delicious. I would love to return here in the future.
