“Great resort, service and amenities! Especially love ALL the restaurant choices. They did have people on the beach selling stuff all day which we didn’t love but you can pass by pretty easily. Did get small injury (cut in the water) while I was there and the on site nurse was great. Also the tennis instructor was so much fun and worked with my wife and I everyday, despite the heat! Would recommend and return” – Brad M. 7/17
