The oceanfront was amazing! Beautiful view, and the property staff were really nice! The rooms are severely outdated, though, and that would be my only complaint. Although it did not ruin the experience in the slightest, it probably is about time to start renovations.

Loved the ocean view! Only thing I wish is that they turn off the outside music so you could hear just the ocean when sitting on the balcony at night.

The resort is beautiful, beach view from room is outstanding. The room itself was ok. The toilets were dirty, one of them had a leaking issue and the room was not thoroughly cleaned. The fitness room was a joke, all the equipment was old and didn't function properly. Not worth the extra money over Holiday Inn up the street.
