You can definitely tell that this resort takes pride in who they hire. The staff is all very wonderful and definitely lives up to the name.

“all rooms have somewhat of an ocean view. for quieter room, chose the tower or east or west view, not a pool view.”

“The best rooms are the ones facing the pool - 1203 to 1219; same on the 3rd floor.”
