Reviewed 5 June 2014

My husband and I were on our honeymoon for this trip. We also had my service dog with us. This was our second stay on the property. We loved every second of our stay here. They were fantastic from the moment we arrived to the moment we extended our stay, and then down to the second we begrudgingly checked out again. Everything is clean and well taken care of. The staff is excellent. I especially enjoy the shuttle service with the guy who dresses up like a pirate and has the disco ball and music in his golf cart. It makes for an excellent trip from parking to the door. They've never given me issues with Ranger (my service dog). We were up on the tenth floor this time around. The views are stunning. Nothing like the views with coffee and the paper on the balcony in the morning. We also came back one night just in time to catch the end of the Dive In Movie and watched from our balcony. Mike at the Tiki Bar was a superb bartender. I have yet to use the spa, and hate that I missed the Polynesian fire Show. Those are my only regrets, and entirely my own fault. I've not a single negative thing to say about this resort. There is also mini golf literally less than a hundred feet or so from the door. You won't regret your stay. I can't wait to go back and snorkel some more!

Room Tip: Make sure you call in and get a room a little higher up for the guaranteed views! I'm certain th...

The Elvis impersonator was entertaining in fact we love him so much and his dedication to our military.. Kionty Fields was energetic and helpful with our bags! Our waterfront room was gorgeous with views of emerald and turquoise waters.. The front staff even gave us late check out! Great value! Entertainment everyday.. Why go anywhere else.. We hope to come back!! Thank you to all that provided us an exceptional service!

Every year for the last 7 years we spend at least a 4 or 5 days vacationing at this resort more when possible and this year is no different.it is the best place to stay on PCB for family's. they keep the kids entertained while providing top notch. we had one very minor issue this stay and it was quickly addressed by the night shift front desk (Jimmy) who not only corrected by went out of his way to insure we were satisfied. while on the pool deck you will be greeted by the staff and asked regularly if everything is ok and can they do anything for you. Josh Lucas really went above and beyond to help the Restaurant staff one morning when they were over run then he followed that up with excellent service while we were on the pool deck. its this kind of service from the staff that keeps our family returning year after year. hope to be back there again before summer is over.

If you haven't visited yet, what are you waiting for? This place is just as the majority describes: GREAT!
Our room was on the 8th floor, middle, where we enjoyed overlooking the palm trees straight to the beach.
Once at the beach, we were setting up our own umbrella and Karin came over and drilled a hole in the sand--that's service! (Note* although they provide pool towels, you need to bring your own beach towels).
Robert and Mike S. are always around, super nice, and always hospitable. A few others that were super nice were Minor and Lettie. Michelle at the Food Shack gave me excellent service and was a real sweet gal! Thank you guys for making our stay wonderful!
People: from the time you pull in, check-in, eat, drink, swim, watch movies, dance, sing, dodge waves, sun bathe, etc., to the time you check-out, you will have a great time!
I rated Sleep quality very good, not excellent, because it wasn't my bed.
We intend to return and make more wonderful memories at this fabulous state-side resort.
Thank you HIR-PCB!

This is the 2nd time in 3 years we (wife, I, and 7 year old daughter) have used my Priority Club points to stay here. This time it was for 6 nights in May. Wonderful!!! The rooms have great furniture -- an organizer/entertainment center with tons of little cubicles to put all of your stuff in and a safe so you can lock your stuff and not feel like you need to take it with you. The view out the balcony is PARADISE, the staff including the security people are ALWAYS nice, activities and music by the pool is almost like being on a cruise ship--creates a nice festive atmosphere. WE LOVED the Luau, the 3 piece band that never gets enough tips for what they do, a cool outdoor bar and the Dive-in Theater by the pool. I wish we had discovered the food by the pool in the evening earlier during our stay because it is GREAT and priced reasonably for a resort. As a frequent business traveler that is very picky over the little things, I can tell you this place does it right. Plenty of towels (they supply pool towels at the pool), drains that drain, good lighting, an expected coffee pot in the room, great wifi, plenty of restaurants/activities near by and always free fresh coffee in the lobby and real fruit flavored ice water by the pools. They've spent some money on the grounds and the place is clean and well kept. They were planting new flowers out front when we arrived, which was impressive. The housekeeping staff, though not very timely as noted, does do a GREAT JOB cleaning -- mopping the sand from the floor each day -- I'm sure it's a logistical nightmare to coordinate cleaning with vacationers that are coming and going all day. See you next year!!!

We spent several days last week at the Resort. Simply the best customer service that we've ever seen. Nelson Matos, Mike Scicchitano, and Clint Williams were all simply incredible with their hospitality. They gave us free drinks and a free meal for winning a small wager with Nelson.

The fact that our 3 kids could eat for free at the food shack was a very nice surprise. Saved us some serious cash. The pulled pork is quite outstanding.

The kids activities with the staff, who were dressed up like pirates was awesome. They even had our 4 and 6 year olds digging for buried treasure on the beach, which they loved. The guy driving the large golf cart to and from your vehicle named Ricky was also dressed up like a pirate and did magic tricks for the kids. They loved it.

The Aqua land, large pool with seating on the edges, and the beach area were amazing. Simply second to none.
The DJ at the pool was really good and he really had a great way of getting the kids involved.

Two things really made this resort special. The customer service from Nelson and his crew and the amazing cleanliness of this beach resort. The rooms were very clean, which is so hard to find on the beach.

We will be back. Hopefully soon.
