We had a relaxing time...
Liked: The loacation was great! Close to the beach and close to the town - shopping and food! The grounds are beautiful and are kept emacuately - lots of chairs and tables - nice to have grills and fire pits at night. Love the tree carvings and flowered winding walkways. Liked the kitchen appliances and cookware - newer. Nice pool and hot tub. Starbucks coffee is a plus! Very clean rooms and grounds.
Disliked: The bed and pillows were not the greatest. The rooms and furnishings were a little worn and dated. The gym is super small and cramped and mirrors held together with duct tape. You had to ?sign out? everything - beach towels, hair dryer, gym key. ?Breakfast? is bagged bagel, yogurt, fruit and juice. Seems to be rules oriented - Could have a more friendly, generous, customer-friendly, let-me-help-you, we?re-glad-you?re-here attitude for my taste.

Great Resort with small disappointments
Liked: This property is well kept and has private entrances into the resort with key cards, so we definitely felt secure. The rooms are nice and exactly what you see in the pictures, clean and quiet, loved our jacuzzi tub. They have the places fully set up with everything you will need, silverware, hangers ect. The beach is really close as well it's only a 5 min walk, with plenty to do around you.
Disliked: I wouldn't say the property itself has any issues there was just small disappointments here and there in service. It's sounded like there was a breakfast included, their version of breakfast is putting out packaged food (yogurt, bagel, juice) a "grab and go" breakfast, I was hoping for something better from a resort. I was called at 7am twice because they neglected to inform me there was contraction they were doing in the morning so I had to get up and move the car, mind you I was parked in the resort parking, I don't understand why they didn't tell me to not park there if there was going to be construction on the property, I was very disappointed in that. Its Valentine's day I'm trying to enjoy my time with my spouse. The lady we spoke to in check in was pretty aggressive about the rules which is frustrating because I was taking my spouse on a Valentine's trip so we felt alittle unwelcome at first. If those things were improved this place would really be above and beyond. Overall nice experience and might try again because the lady at check out was sweet, and the rooms were so nice.

Disliked: Could not open blinds and have any privacy, so the room was dark on a sunny day.

excellant besides for parking!
Liked: Love the staff! They were GREAT! and very friendly and helpful. Room was decorated beach theme and clean. They have a full size fridge and stove plus dishes and all. Everything had just been recently been updated I think. I loved the pool, hot tub and the outside sitting area with fire pits and the resident cats. It was like having our own jungle paradise right across the street from the beach. I just wished there was more parking!
Disliked: The parking is lousy and my only real complaint They give you a pass to put in the window yet every afternoon when we returned to our room there was no parking! and plenty of cars parked in the hotel spaces that didn't have the pass in the window. I feel because it is so close to the beach people park there for free parking to the beach. And us as paying hotel guests had to find street parking further away or pay for city parking! I think if they were to watch this more closely all would be perfect! I wish they had microwaves in the room. But they have coffee and tea available anytime in the office and a microwave in there to borrow. The unit we rented had a full kitchen full size fridge and stove. But there are just certain quick things a micro is good for.
