Overall wonderful but the “extras”, drinks/food can run the cost of your stay up pretty quick. Which is true of most resorts.

Was truly amazing. Service was excellent from front desk check in to wait staff and the folks we encountered along the way. Everyone greeted us and said good morning. We loved the grounds , especially turtle beach and the turtle feedings.

My husband and I spent a couple days here, and everything was wonderful. Beautiful resort that we never wanted to leave. It was icing on the cake that breakfast was included with our Travelzoo deal. I also enjoyed the text messages I got from the resort that allowed me to easily ask for a paper outside our room and a later checkout.

Good location on the beach and near restaurants, etc. Room was fine, though view was mainly of the pool, not “ocean horizon” (had to go out on balcony to get view). Quite a bit of noise one night from a wedding reception below our room. Food on site was good and reasonably priced, though service a bit slow/absent at times (i.e. early breakfast). Pool was good and had plenty of space. Would have been nice to have a few more kid-friendly activities (i.e. movies by the pool on more nights, maybe a bonfire, etc.). Travelzoo discount was good and no trouble.
