2 satisfied not so older couple
We are a "young" older couple [67] The resort is in a great easy to get to location. Having a car was useful. You can easily drive east and west to see other places. The facility had anything we wanted, service was always there, breakfast on par with the best of the Marriotts. I don't think it would be easy to get to the beach for those using wheelchairs. Beach and Terrace Grill pool were exceptional and their location views. I strongly suggest letting the staff park and retrieve your car. Tennis courts were very good condition and the resort was compact enough to get to different areas. We would definitely return and tell others. When we have grandchildren there is plenty for them to do. We came because of someone else.oh we never slept so well in fact I didn't even snore.
