This "resort" was in a great location on the beach. Beyond that it was very disappointing. I had two rooms for my family . When we checked in both of the room smelled very musty. The rooms were very noisy with all the noises in the hallway. The A/C was extremely loud and did not work well in both rooms.Three out of 4 queen beds were old and uncomfortable. I will not go back or recemmend.

The staff accommodations to our needs was outstanding. Only drawback there are no microwaves in the rooms. You can’t beat the location.

This is an older, yet updated property. The rooms are older but recently upgraded. Modern look, but older feel. The facilities are beautiful and.the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, but inconspicuous. They are not hovering but always there if you need something. We stayed in the off season so we're not outside much. The location is excellent, right on the beach.
