Amenities offered include indoor and heated outdoor swimming pools with accompanying Jacuzzis, a kiddie pool, a seasonal children’s activity program, an acceptable in house restaurant, a lazy river pool, a fitness room, an icecream shop, a video game room, and a seasonally operated bar and grill. The restaurant offers a breakfast buffet that is worth waking up and enjoying.
Interestingly enough, the resort consists of nine different buildings which constitute a wide variety of choices in which to stay. The Caravelle is the resort hotel, and the other complexes contain the condominiums that are available.
The Caravelle has made a concerted effort to maintain the quality of furniture in the rooms, and a guest could easily imagine that he was at home during some part of his stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone. They offer weekly rates throughout the year, and I think their golf and entertainment packages are as good as or better than just about anyone at the beach.

My children and myself attended a weekend at the beach with our female church group. We had children with us that ranged in age from 5 months to 16 years. We checked into our hotel and thought it would be a lovely weekend. However once in our rooms we knew right off that wasn't going to be the case. In our room to our surprise there were no towels or toilet paper in the bathroom, left over food in the refrigerator, woman's heels under the bed, condom wrapper on the bedroom floor and one of our 6 year old daughters found a plastic bag with 6 9mm bullets on one of the stands! We called housekeeping and got answering machine. (Never to hear back.) We called security to come and get the bullets, and check the room in case a gun was left behind also. (Security watched us check under the beds, furniture, and in fold down bed.) Once we pulled the bed out of the wall also noticed that the blankets and sheets on that hadn't been changed from previous guest either!
We called management to complain about all of our mishaps that occurred and the manager was rude and called our preachers daughter a liar and stated to her that we could have brought the bullets ourselves! We got no satisfaction from any of the resort staff. I understand that the hotel has no control over what guest bring into their rooms, but it is their job to see to it that the rooms are properly cleaned and thoroughly checked and ready for the next guest... so they can enjoy a comfortable stay.
I wouldn't recommend this resort to my family, friends, other church goers, strangers or even my enemies for that matter. Traveler please think twice before booking a room at this resort on the ocean front!

We chose to stay at the Caravelle Tower (the resort is split into several different buildings) and were greatly disappointed. First of all, 90% of the amenities such as the lazy river, grocery store, restaurant, excercise room, and ice cream shop. At our building there were ice machines (that were always, always out of ice), washers and dryers that bounced (of course the detergent for these was two floors aways), a vending machine, a small gift shop, and a small pool that looks nothing like the one pictured on the website. You'll also find the foul smelling dumpster located right next to the building. (You get to walk by it every time you go to the beach) We also had a problem with kids running through the halways yelling to one another late at night.
I can't say all bad things. The room was nice, and had an okay view of the ocean. (The rooms face another building, but if you look about 90 degrees to your left, you can see part of the ocean.)
