Part of Island Air package made this very economical. Parking and resort fees are a bit higher than comparable properties. Amenities are decent and property appears well kept. Rooms have dated decor and are showing wear/tear to the point of becoming distractive to the resort experience. Chair had ripped material and wall paper is beginning to come up at the...

My husband and I and our 12 year old grandson stayed here 11 nights. We LOVED it so much. There were days we didnt leave the grounds. There are several pools and the boy loved the waterslide! We read poolside, ate and ate and enjoyed the quiet and the sun! We loved the 5 oclock show they did at the...

We went to this place for a place to just get away. We went the end of Feb. to the beginning of Mar. We staid in the ocean front room. We could look out of our balcony right to the ocean. Beautiful. Everything was great, no complaints. We did get accustom to the early roosters, but we are from the...

Lobby is beautiful. Plantation style. Rooms updated and clean. Bed a little squishy and the walls thin. Can easily hear people in the hall and next door neighbors. The grounds are nice and sprawling. The fitness center equipment should be updated. The ellipticals are rusting and not operating smoothly. Seafood buffet Saturday evening was fantastic minus the ambiance. Screaming babies...

This is a resort still on good legs and going fine. The only little fault was the service in the restaurant was a little off as in they did not listen well or the chef did not listen to the servers. The rest was great. Great pools, beach, and grounds. A real value in every way.

The grounds of the hotel are spectacular. The pool is gorgeous, which is nice since the beach in front of the hotel is good for walking and wading but too rough for true swimming. The rooms are small but clean and the bathrooms are spacious. The breakfast buffet is delightful. Definitely rent a car if you are staying here and...

We stayed here for 4 nights. We were on our honeymoon. The resort is right by the ocean, which is very nice. It's also in the center- so you can go either side of the island within reasonable time. They charge for car parking which is $18 per day which is insane. I mean you have guests paying to stay...

First, our room was a deluxe beach view. Unfortunately the beach could only be seen from one corner part of our lanai. Building #4 has the best views! The room was nice and updated! Very clean! The weather was pretty bad which led to boredom. There really isn't anything to do if it's raining which was sad! We were stuck...

Found that the service in both the resturant and bar was poor. Seemed understaffed. One morning, our party went to breakfast and ordered the buffet. Our table was lacking 2 place settings. We asked our server for 2 more. Not only did she grunt a reply, our place settings and water requested showed up when we had finished 40 minutes...
