guest score: very good | 8 out of 10

We went on a 4 night/5 day get away. Beach was super, spent most of the day enjoying. The buffet got old real fast - it is the only option that you have for breakfast and lunch. Unable to take it in a carry out container to eat on the beach, must be eaten inside. If you don't make dinner reservations early in the am, you will get stuck with the buffet.Or go outside the hotel and enjoy a nice dinner across the street, many stores and resturants are there. Beware of the "welcome package" - the hotel is really trying to get you to go to the 1 hour timeshare presentation. The sales staff for this, will continue to "hound" you to attend everytime you walk past them.
pros: Beach was the best. Plenty of palm cabanas, beautiful sand and no rocks or shells getting into the water.
cons: Buffet is always open and only 2 resturants are open each night. If you don't make a reservation early, it's buffet for you!

Overall it was a good stay, however, there room description of a ocean view is misleading! I paid for a full ocean view and i had a partial view. This was my bad experience with this hotel.
pros: Location
cons: The room i selected was not provided for two days!
