Another great experience - we visit every Feb with friends for a week. This was our 5th year. Super clean, super friendly, always a wonderful experience. Beach services exceed every other hotel in the area. The employees have been there for many years and want you to have a good experience. We already booked for next year- and we are staying longer!

I have never stayed at a hotel anywhere in the world where the entire staff was so AMAZING from top to bottom. I was in their older basic rooms (less expensive), but it was clean and had everything we needed (they have newer or larger rooms with more amenities for a few dollars more). Two nice pools, very family friendly, and beautiful gardens that you can tell someone really loves and cares about. Excellent meals in their restaurant too! They also have a free shuttle to and from the beach with beach lounge chairs and a private bathroom for hotel guests! And did I mention the AMAZING AMAZING service?! I would definitely stay here again.
