The owners' smoking ruins the experience for non-smokers. These people are cooking the guests' food WHILE smoking! I quit smoking over 15 years ago, and shouldn't have to be subjected to second-hand smoke all during my stay. Since the owners are such heavy smokers, they can't even tell how they smell, and the rest of the resort smells.
In addition, I was angry that the resort is not on the beach, when the web site address, with beachfront in the url, says it is. Just another example of being fast and loose with the truth.
They should put a notice on their web site: Smokers only!
