Beautiful location. Was a perfect destination. Food was great at times. Drinks were flowing. Many spring break people there while our family was there. Staff were friendly. Cons Dirty beach. Drink glasses straws cigarette butts everywhere. Food wasn't consistent. Evening entertainment was weak and lacking.

From the bell boys to the front desk clerks, the bartenders and housekeeping staff, everyone we encountered was extremely helpful and pleasant. Our room was...
