My mom and I stayed for a week at Pompano recently. From the minute we arrived, the staff went above and beyond.
The beach is a small private beach with a bar (the bartender was willing to wade into the ocean to deliver drinks), pool noodles, chairs, umbrellas, as rafts. Snorkeling gear was also available. The water is unbelievably clear and shallow pretty far out.
The restaurants were great too. One restaurant has a fixed menu and the other changes nightly. We did the meal plan which was 30 dollars extra per person and included a FIVE COURSE dinner. They also had a manager party on Monday night that was free appetizers and rum swizzles, which culminated in a BBQ buffet at The Cedar Room. They chefs were grilling steak, chicken, fish (try the wahoo), potatoes, corn, and ribs. This really feels like the kind of thing that one can only get at a small family owned resort, which this one is, having been started in the 1950s and continually owned and operated by the same family.
One can really tell a lot about a resort by how the employees act, and how many guests are returning guests. There was a certain sense of loyalty amongst the staff and returning guests. Many of the staff are long term employees, and a lot of the guests we talked to were on at least their fourth visit.
Any maintenance was performed quickly. The views from the ocean front balcony were beautiful. Thank you for a great stay. I’ll be back.
