He took us to our room on the fifth floor via one of the two elevators. We walked in and immediately saw the Atlantic Ocean through the full length window/door across the room.
As we entered, there was a closet to the left and to the right a half bath. (Very pretty.)
The next area was the kitchen which had a mini dishwasher (it was so cute; I had never seen one that small!). There was a sink, a stove top, and a microwave. Not a full kitchen, but enough for us.
The living/dining area had table and chairs for dining, a couch with hassocks, and a chair with another hassock. The best part of the living room was the humongous plasma TV. We were able to watch the Big East basketball tournaments during our stay and it was great. In the entertainment center, there were a CD and a DVD player. The sounds that came out were spectacular. Loved it.
Out the glass door is a balcony. Looking right, we see Atlantic City. At night, this is a superb view. There is another balcony off the bedroom. Ah, the bedroom. The king size bed is raised off the ground which makes it a REALLY big bed. There is a dresser with another TV and a desk. There is also a divan which looks very Hollywood to me. A big walk-in closet is off the bedroom.
Now what makes this suite truly spectacular. The master bath is huge, bigger than some of the other rooms. There is a marble tub with jets. It can easily hold two people. And a sauna!
A pool is on the roof but unfortunately being it is seasonal, we did not get to use it. I would have liked to see it but we were not allowed up there in the off-season.
On the third floor there is an owner’s lounge with comfy chairs and games to be played. There is a TV and two computers to use free of charge with internet access. It’s also stocked with snacks (Hershey kisses and pretzels while we were there).
Next to the lounge is a laundry room for use by all guests. The resort has parking under cover but unfortunately the employees use that area to smoke.
The resort offers smoking and non-smoking rooms. It’s a two-block walk to the beach, a 6-minute drive to the casinos in the marina and about 15 minutes to the boardwalk casinos. The resort has a shuttle to the Borgata Casino.
La Sammana is close enough to Atlantic City to enjoy the casino fun and nightlife, but is on Brigantine Island, an oasis away from all that craziness.
