We had a great time at the hotel beach and pool. The pool was very warm and big. At night it lit up really beautifully in a dark blue. There were many restaurants near by and they had a great breakfast buffet. We only stayed for a little while and it felt like we were in Mexico. Overall I loved... More

The pool is heated and open late, we were swimming in mid November. Pool area includes spa tubs, a waterfall, slide and an adults only swim up bar area. H2O pool... More

Around midnight I had an issue with the person next door singing very loudly at the top of her lungs.... More

Decide to get a manicure in the spa. Shena was terrific and very sweet to me. I would definitely return to the spa for more services. I look forward to going back! The room and view of the water was heavenly. Super nice employees.
