I am a budget traveler and get my moneys worth and more there. There have been upgrades each time I go. If I wanted to stay on the water I would have to spend three times a much. Their pool is what I like most. Yes, it is difficult to get a beach towel after a certain time but what the heck. In the heat you dry off in 2 minutes. The beach area is beautiful and there are now beach chairs down there for hotel guests and as well, good food and drink. This winter will be my 6th time there.
