Family vacation at a golf course, right on! Great sandy beach with lifeguard, enough rocks to keep the kids entertained. The water was surprisingly warm and calm - in and out all day. Don't miss the Burger/Lobster Roll Shack on the beach. The modern hotel was fantastic, the beds were very comfortable with all the right amenities- like the L'Occitane soap/shampoo. Golf Quotes on each door to your room was a fun touch. We ate at the Cabot Public House (with the Kids) which offers casual dining and the Panorama Restaurant (just the adults) which offers great views of the ocean and golf course along with terrific food. The Golf course (Top 100 in the world) was a treat to play, fun par 3 towards the ocean with the wind in your face. The staff are very friendly and on the ball- noticing we were a family of 5, had extra towels to our room without asking. Final word: we would go again!
