Words can not explain my satisfaction with this resort. From the moment my boyfriend and I arrived until the moment that we left we experienced nothing but a wonderful time.
We booked using the educator/teacher discount and received a ocean view room. We also received a free drink voucher, 20 percent off spa services and complimentary breakfast every morning, This was a great deal!
Check in- Although getting off our flight at 10am and check in not until 3pm I called to see if we would be able to check in early. We were told to come on over and our room would be ready. This was great and provided us one full extra day of beach time!
Room- The room was gorgeous. The beds were perfect. Granite countertops, stove top, refrigerator, microwave, utensils and cookware. . We were easily able to provide ourselves with lunch after stopping at the supermarket. My one request is to provide larger bowls. I made myself a salad each day for lunch and had to ear it out of one of the pots for the stove top (not a big deal though!) The bathroom was beautiful. Seperate toilet area, shower, and seperate tub. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash provided. These were great the conditioner actually was able to get the knots out of my hair! The room also provides beer, liquor, and snacks but charges astronomical fees. Put those aside and go buy yourselves some snacks at the CVS down the road.
Breakfast- Each morning we received complimentary breakfast. We were given 30 dollars to split between the two of us. Although I am vegan, I was provided with a fresh fruit bowl with various kinds of fruits and was also provided oatmeal made with no milk. My boyfriend indulged in many of the egg dishes. He stated that they were all delicious. What was out of this world though was the breakfast potatoes. I wouldnt dare order myself one of their HUGE side dishes of these although I craved it every morning just because I know I would not have the self control to not eat the entire plate!
Spa- My boyfriend and I used the spa and purchased a couples massage. It was so wonderful and relaxing. The spa was beautiful. It had a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. The provided robes and flip flops to wear. My only request is that the spa open earlier. I would have loved to use the facilities after working out early in the morning. I understand though why it would be open the hours that it is.
Pool Bar- The bar was awesome. It had great food and amazing drinks. The pina coladas were to die for. The food was also awesome. Once again a vegan option of a bean sprout wrap. Yum.
Location- Prime location right across the street from the beach and maybe 3 miles from Las Olas Blvd. There is a shuttle thats 3 dollars each way per person. Well worth it and reliable (most of the time) A taxi was only 10 dollars though so if you dont mind spending the extra bucks, do it.
Check out- Although checkout is at 12 pm. We really wanted to stay the day. We loved the place so much we wanted to stay an extra night (they were sold out though!) Anyway, the front desk told us that they would hold on to our bags for us and refrigerate our food while we went to the beach for the day. They also told us we can use the spa showers to freshen up if we would like. This was more than accomodating and once again elongated our trip and made it so much more enjoyable.
Tips for travelers- if your a beach goer, dont waste 44 dollars a day on beach chairs and umbrellas. Walk a mile down the road along the beach and there is a cvs we spent 65 dollars on two chairs and an umbrella and saved ourselves hundreds of dollars instead of renting for 6 days.
