I stayed here with family prior to New Year's Eve and was fairly satisfied with the hotel overall. For this trip, I redeemed Marriott Rewards points for a double bed standard room. At this property, customers redeeming points are allowed two complimentary breakfast buffets per day. The hotel was charging rates in neighborhood of $495+, which while it was around Christmas and News Years seems very high given the condition of the rooms and amenities offered. The food overall, was about what I expected however the Kurrents steak and seafood restaurant was remarkable. They have wonderful filets and side dishes like fried rice that are great to share. However, I was particularly dissatisfied with the Tropiks buffet restaurant. The food on the buffet line as terrible; and appeared to have been reheated from the night before. Quinn's on the beach front was decent and offered burgers and sandwiches but was also carried the typical resort prices.The resort has many pools, however I would have liked a dedicated adults/16+ pool or hours that designate that. The hotel offers a spa pool which does charge for access and is on the small side and secluded from the beach front. Fitness center was very large and had modern equipment. Beach front location and convenience can't be beat.
