Okay but needs some staff training
Resort is okay but very busy with weddings and functions so customer service was poor. Price of parking is ridiculous and should be included for guests. Staff at check-in very rude and unhelpful. No in room dining even though it is advertised.

One Night Stay
We had a one night stay before going to a concert. We arrived a little early and our room was ready. We had our dog and that is the main reason we selected this resort. I wish our sliding glass door had a screen and that the pillows were softer, but those are minor concerns. We had dinner and lunch at the re so pet’s restaurant Vessel, and I have to give a shout out to the employees of the restaurant. They could not have been nicer!! Also, the bell man Christian, was very helpful offering to drive me in the golf cart , part of the way to the concert venue.

8/10 Very good

The views of the harbor are amazing. The fire pit areas at night are fun and relaxing. I didn’t like the extra charges they have on a daily basis and the extra surcharge in the restaurant. No free coffee after 7 am seems cheap when staying at an upscale property. The service by the pool isn’t great but the bartenders are great if you order your own food and drink.

The boat we rented on property stopped and we ended up slamming up against the rocky shore for almost an hour until they came and helped.
