Room had absolutely NO view. Unable to open small shade as it was over high trafficked court area. Asked for late checkout due to not being able to enjoy amenities because of meetings and rain. Charged $20/hour for room not booked.

We are usually a Mexico vacation with huge pools and little beach time kind of a family. However with everything going on in today’s world, that wasnt going to happen. So to Florida it was! From the moment we checked in, I knew we had made the right decision. The resort was clean, kid friendly, beach was amazing, and our family had a great time! -that’s all we could ask for. That being said the food and the drinks are pricey at the resort. We brought a cooler from home and packed it each day. Our room had a kitchenette ( but we mainly just used the fridge) so poolside/beachside sandwiches it was for lunches. As for the grounds, they were nice as well, yah you see a trash bag outside someone’s room, but with their covid housekeeping rules they don’t clean until after your 4th day. They are very good at still accommodating towels and picking up your trash outside your room. ( so that was no bother to us). We are used to the beautiful pools down in Mexico, so this was a change. Smaller pools, but still okay. One only thing for pools is that their family pools at both rum fish and the Tradewinds have a small section for 3.5ft and then instantly goes to 8ft. - if that’s my only issue, then it was still a successful family trip. Breakfast at skidders across the street, dinners at crabby bills during the week(the weekend was too busy). Dinner at snappers across the street was my favorite! All in all, wouldn't change a thing. We would return

The staff was very nice. The coffee bar in the main lobby was excellent and convenient. The room was a disappointment the layers of old paint on the walls and misaligned trim gave the room a very cheap feel, short ceilings (maybe 7 1/2 feet tall) led to a very cramped feeling. The beach was beautiful but when they come around 2 hours before sunset and take away the cushions for the beach chairs and the pole for the cabana (which is advertised as included in your resort fee) it puts a damper on your time at the beach. Drinks from the bar were hit and miss, some were good others were horrible and just tasted like something thrown together at a frat party. Facilities were filthy, trash in the palm trees outside our room and the same trash was in the water features at the property the whole week we were there.

Check in time was 4; we were attending a wedding at the hotel that started at 5. We told them that at 3. Our room was not ready at 4, and only because we were pushy were we able to into our room at 4:30. Barely had time to change clothes and get to the wedding.

I apologize for the inconvenience of the wait for your room, as we are running very high, unexpected occupancy. Staffing arrangements have since been implemented to ensure guest rooms at ready upon the 4pm registration time. It appears everything else went according to plan, and we certainly hope to see you again. Thank you,
