          The staff member from management to housekeeping were all very nice! They should be proud of their staff members. Paying a little extra for the balcony looking out over the bay is worth every penny. I would come back to this resort in a second!

          When I was there, they actually had 2 pools. A new large lap pool in the back courtyard was almost done but delayed due to constant rains. Unfortunately, I don't recall if either were heated.
