The two things we enjoyed the most were the easy access to lots of beach area and the staff. The hotel has several properties which you can access. Each one has quite a bit of beach access so we never felt crowded when on the beach. We also really loved the staff. Every single person (yes, every single one!) was incredibly friendly and helpful. Honestly, the friendliness of the staff really made the whole experience.

Unfortunately, the advertised activities which they typically place in the ocean were not set up and have not been set up since the last hurricane. The hurricane pushed quite a bit of sand towards the beach so the hotel feels that it is too dangerous to place the activities in the water due to the shallow depth. This was somewhat of a disappointment as my family and me were really looking forward to this. However, the hotel did still set up activities on the beach plus there are lots (6 in total) pools which you can use. Overall it was a great experience and we decided we would absolutely return.

Having a cabana to use on the beach was nice.
Other Comments
The hotel smelled like they just sprayed for bugs. They even came to my room and asked if they could spray. It would have been nice if they did that after I checked out.
