Wonderful restful paradise
Very good. Only problem was late night music from some club-- could have been some off-site place. Loved the restaurants and the live music there.

Nice comfortable stay
Big comfortable room, a little noisy late night or early morning. Ask about quiet room. Breakfast buffet is amazing. Recommended

Depends on where your room is located....
The property is great. The club next door on the south side plays loud music till 4:00 am and this appears to be legal. The second night was really bad so we asked for our ocean view room to be changed and they put us in a wonderful ocean front room on the north side of the building where all we could hear was the soothing ocean. If staying get a room on the north side of the 400 room property.

I was in for almost a week to attend a friend's wedding and get some vacation time with my friends. The hotel was good, clean, fun, and reliable if basic -- but the big adventures lie outside of the resort.
