The food at the Sandbar outdoor restaurant was excellent, happy hour started at 2PM. You can walk every but there's also a "Jolly Trolley" (mask required) to take from end to end. The hotel staff go out of their way to be helpful, we had a very nice stay.

Being right on the Gulf, literally, meant you could literally sit by the pool and stare out at nothing but the ocean. The beach was a short walk away, perfect for the two of us. The room was great, and the food was even better.
