Pros: We loved staying there. The staff was very responsive and friendly. The room was very,very comfortable.
Cons: I didn't like paying extra for items that should have been included, such as beach chairs. The $29.00 resort fee should include a beach chair to sit in!
Pros: The hotel was very clean and had decent facilities. However, the spave and staff were nkt on par with other places we've stayed.
Cons: A lot of the staff are younger kids and communicate and behave as though you are a disruption. The girl who checked us in was busy giggling with someone on the radio, the boy handing out pool towels appeared annoyed he had to hand us towels.
When tou work in the hospitality industry at a place that wants to be high end, the people hired should be just as dedicated to the cauae as those managing.
Pros: Great place, even though we were a local couple, staying here was like staying in a totally different town.

Pros: clean rooms: more than comfortable sized rooms, airy; all staff was gracious and because of their front desk location in the lobby, unfailingly welcomed us. Tthat actually made for a particularly personable welcome and valued as a guest (rather than a client so to speak). parking is very easy (and no fee). Next to a great coffee place!
Cons: the location in a retail center; however, they did manage to make the little pool area private and we walked to a GREAT New Year's Eve dinner at Aqua.
I'm not sure why you kept your van parked in the drop off zone. Rather inconvenient.
Pros: I had the best two nights sleep that I've had in a long time! The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable and the pillows were amazing!

Pros: Location was great. Main facility was beautiful. Great having the shuttle to the private beach access.

Our air conditioning went out at 11:00 pm and had to move all our stuff into another unit in another building. Not so easy with a sleeping 5 year old.
Pros: The staff is outstanding, great golf resort
Cons: Water stain in shower ceiling, bathroom doors don't lock.
