Perfect location for a family trip! Large resort with tons of family oriented activities! Our family enjoyed the foam pool party! Beach is breath taking!! Lots of food options from pizza, pouting, ice cream shop, burgers, sandwiches and plenty of vegetarian options. Resort was very clean. Staff was more than helpful! Water sports on the beach were so much fun!...

Excellent...

My husband and I were talking at length about the fact that most reviews are based on great experiences or bad experiences and little in between. My experience at the hotel was somewhere in the middle. The beach was great and the climate a nice break from Canada's winter. Overall, good value for money at this hotel. The staff were...
