The property offers alot of options...2 pools with pool bars and jacuzzis. A private beach with fire pits. Restaurant, spa, fitness center and many outdoor spaces. It can be loud if many people and children are visiting and on the private beach. Didn't bother us. I totally recommend the Marina View rooms vs the Bay rooms. Bay rooms offer views of the parking lot, the road and then the bay. Not the resort's fault. I wish the restaurant would offer more simple food options.

We stayed here for my birthday weekend. The hotel was hosting a “lifetime members 80s party” at the same time. They allowed those members to take up most of the parking on a Saturday night ,which meant we couldn’t leave our spot without it being taken and the resort didn’t have a solution. On top of that, we were kicked out of the pool area for not having a wristband. Things like that should be addressed upon check in, as these are included amenities. Just know their lifetime members are prioritized over guests who are paying a high price for a room. The walls are paper thin,and there was hair in the tub. I can’t recommend this place.

We feel like we were sold on the views and the views were not as sold. According to staff we had one of best rooms for views of the bay . The trees in front right next to the rooms block everything and even blocked our balcony views . Maybe just our room but shouldn’t be a selling point.
