"In the Ambassador section, first floor toward the south grassy area is great for kids to romp, with great ocean views!"
"3rd floor Grand Classe - Adults only with a great balcony!"
"Choose the ocean view room--the first floor if you want immediate access to the ocean and pool"
"everything was great just need to get rid of the musty smell "
"Grand Class Suite was beautiful, but next time I would likely choose the Ambassador Suite. Both gorgeous and on the beach."
