Charged for parking
The resort was underwhelming. Rooms are not good and they charged $10 a day for parking which is NOT explained when checking in or booking. Will not stay again.

Beware of hidden fees !!!
Beware of the hidden parking fees !!! They are hidden in a link below the room choices. They were not included in my confirmation as was the resort fee and was dropped on me at the desk. They refused to drop the charges . The parking at this hotel is terrible considering I was charged extra for it. We could never get a space near our room and the spaces are tiny.

Would stay again.
This is a great resort. Ocean and pools. Best of both worlds. The couch in our suite is disgusting. Stains everywhere. Very old. Room has been updated and is pretty nice otherwise. Grounds are beautifully landscaped. Beds could use an upgrade.
