We could not have found a better week to get away from 3 snow storms in NJ! Perfect weather. The property, accommodations, food and staff were excellent! We booked a Jr. Suite that had an ocean view of the Atlantic! The all inclusive package afforded us with wonderful dining experiences at 3 restaurants, an Italian restaurant, seafood restaurant and a Caribbean restaurant (which was the best). The buffet dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner offered great variety. A few dollars ($USD) to a bartender ensured a strong cocktail all day/evening.
The only small annoyance was the licensed beach vendors (they quickly recognized my shopaholic wife!) and little bugs showing up in the room-although they did exterminate!
Our Valentine's Day dinner on the beach was amazing... with a bottle of proseco delivered in the morning, a 5 course meal on the beach in the evening, roses, chocolates and rose petals on the bed in the evening and breakfast in bed the following morning!
Special mention to Vilma Beard, Guest Services Manager for her pre-visit emails and the front desk staff (Kevin) and Expedia's concierge services! JetBlue was easy-breezy!
