Excellent venue; a bit pricy

Beautiful rooms; staff was decent but not fantastic (sometimes hard to find). Food was also good, and being on the water was gorgeous. Was there with daughter and husband. Really liked the gift shop, the main restaurant, and the room comfort and amenities.

Great resort/pool/ocean

New York City, New York

We stayed there for a wedding from Friday to Sunday. We loved the grounds. Unfortunately the Tiki bar at the pool closes so early (10pm). We were with a big group and we just wanted to enjoy some cocktails and some food but, unfortunately the timing was just not right. Make sure you are prepared if you want to drink or eat after 10pm......Bring your own alcohol (beer, wine or spirits)....and food. Resort is great but it’s in the middle of nowhere. If you enjoy quiet time then you will definitely like this place. We had a great room with an ocean view (with great balcony). Unfortunately for smokers you do have to go to designated areas. The great thing is that you get to enjoy free paddle boarding and kayaking (they are provided by resort). We would definitely go back (even if they close at 10pm).
