We arrived at the resort hours before check in time, but we were opening the door to our room in less than 20 minutes. It was clean, quiet and cool inside. We sat down on our balcony and looked through the palm trees at the beautiful ocean and said, "Ahhh...."
We like to get away in December, and we've stayed at bigger, grander properties, but we actually enjoyed this one more because of its simplicity. First, the beach is fantastic. Next, the service is great .. and quick. And the food is good; the reservation restaurants are *excellent.* The bars are nice, too. ;-)
The clientele is older, and while there is entertainment, it's heard only in the evening. So it is a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Children are rarely seen or heard.
Great place to wind down.
