This property is wonderful. The check-in process was very quick and easy. They do offer an invitation to get coupons if you want to listen to information about their vacation club, but we turned it down with no issues. We checked-in, got to our room, and headed to lunch within a 30 minute period. It is difficult to get pool chairs if you don't grab them first thing in the morning. On our first morning, all chairs were taken by 7:30 am. We went out at 7, and there were a total of 6 chairs available. On our last day though, there were still a handful of chairs available at 8:30....and I did see resort staff removing towels from chairs that no one had sat in yet that morning. The main pool has a lot of activity, but you can still find areas that are quiet! We did not book a preferred room, and we didn't feel that the benefits would have been worth it to us. We booked a partial ocean front view, and had a straight on view of the pool with the ocean right in front of us. It was gorgeous. We went to dinner each night around 7 pm, and we never had to wait for a table. The staff (poolside, housekeeping, and at the restaurants) was excellent. The beach did have some seaweed, but they were working hard to remove it. The food and restaurant options were very nice. We would definitely visit this resort again.
