We especially enjoyed the beautiful sunsets while sitting outside on the balcony. The resort offered a variety of daily activities and Fina at the concierge desk added to the list. The restaurant located next to the resort provided a...

We stayed a week in this excellent resort, having exchanged our time share through RCI. We asked for and got a top floor two bedroom unit, in a quiet area, facing the ocean side.

Gene came and assessed the situation and returned with the correct replacement fixtures, which are NOT bulbs. He replaced two lighting fixtures and cleaned up his mess in less than 15 minutes, Great JOB for Gene.
