A quick one night stay, great location and walked to The Camp Store for a fun evening of music & sunset with friends. We didn't have a car so the walk score was important for us. I think there was a shuttle and i know there were bikes on first come first serve that we would have taken advantage of had we stayed longer. Highligh was sitting by the fireplace outside and basically falling asleep. Nice space. We had very little interaction with the staff but the ones we did see were very pleasant. The late night food quality and bar hygiene is my only ding but we did come in late and they were very accommodating. The breakfast was great & room was as expected.

Please understand that if you are concerned about the happiness and safety of you and your family, this resort is a treat! They are well staffed, for bell and valet service. There is a parking lot right by, the walk to which is beautiful! However Valet is only $5 more. Go for Valet! They will treat you good. The restaurant is amazing, so is the pool. Gym is top notch. They have shuttle service to the beach. Great ambience, and the room is great. Very comfy stay, and I would stay here again and spend a little more money rather than stay at a trashy dump somewhere else.

$25 resort fee and $26 parking fee daily. This is a lot of extra fees. It’s not right on the beach. There is a 4 lane road and a camp ground between the hotel and beach. I’m glad it was a business trip so didn’t matter. The room was dark and one of the lamps didn’t work

Valet, front desk and restaurant staff were all VERY friendly and accommodating to anything we needed. There is a shuttle to a beach near by and they offer beach towels, chairs and water. It was May Gray weather but there were 3 firepits and heaters everywhere outside for my comfort. Pool was heated and Jacuzzi was very nice!
