Wonderful, H U G E room w/ puppy access straight to the nice grass area! Bummed pool area was still closed but it was really nice socializing again & just being out in the fresh, ocean air again! No maid service (unless req.) but still brought me tea & that spa tub in my bathroom gave me a perfect Calgon Take-me-away moment(s) ! Lovely place to stay w/ fam & the puppies!!

    The staff was so polite and went above and beyond to make people happy. They clearly stated the restaurant closed at 700 and a waitress saw mulling around outside looking at 720 and she asked if we wanted anything. We just wanted a couple drinks and she got them for us quickly and was so nice. We did t ask she just wanted to help us! It was great!

    Beautiful location. Beautiful rooms. Just wish kitchen counter and kitchenware smelled clean and not like someone just made some eggs and never washed the plates.
