I found this hotel to be quiet and friendly. We stayed for a week in January 2012. Rooms were average, had some cobwebs on the ceiling of our room when we checked in and located a Maid to remove and she did but I did feel like that is something that should have been noticed way before my visit as they were clearly visible and kinda grossed me out right off the bat. Beach is nice and always had chairs available(no need to save a lounger every a.m as you have to at some larger resorts) but I did not like the fact that we got 3 beach towels daily in our room and had to turn in 3 to receive 3 more by the maid when she cleaned. Would be so much nicer to have access to towels all day in the beach area, turn in one get another type thing, rather than having to wait for the maid to replace our towels everyday. $30 fee if you did not turn in your towel daily in your room so I was always worried about leaving my towel on the beach, at the restaurant etc. If you weren't able to get your towel to your room by cleaning time you were using the same beach towel day after day as you didn't get new ones if your old ones weren't there. Need to have an area you can dump towels easily and get new ones. We never used the pool as it was in a spot that didn't receive any sun so the water was very cold. The week we were there I only saw 2 or 3 peope using the pool, most days it was empty. I do think a hot tub would get a lot of use, they should add one! Everyone was very friendly and the resort is very reasonably priced. Other reviewers mentioned golf being $30 but that is when you bring your own clubs, if you need to rent clubs as well a round will cost you $75. Love the Turtle area out front, nice added thing the kids enjoyed every morning. All in all it was a great trip and only would recommend a few easy fixes.
