Went to spend a few days to celebrate my 50th birthday and Mother’s Day.
Waking up and being able to walk on to the beach was wonderful and having a beach front patio was too! The view of the beach is amazing. Seeing the Ft. Lauderdale air show right over your head was awesome!
Thankful for the Emporium where you can get snacks, ice cream, bagels and treats. Their staff is very nice and friendly.
The restaurants were packed and trying to get a reservation was impossible! We DoorDashed all our meals because their was very limited ability to get meals on site.
The beach crew are all hard working and helps to set you up for the day with beach chairs and umbrellas ( carry a little cash because they deserve a little tip for being in the hot sun all day running around and making guest comfortable).
The property can use a little touch up. My room was cleaned despite Covid. I was only expecting garbage to be taken out and the towels replaced and I appreciate that they clean early so after a day on the beach you’re not coming back to housekeeping in your room as most resorts clean later in the day.
I had a few issues with the front desk. I did run to the lobby in a haste and forgot my mask and was “screamed” at by staff which made be feel embarrassed. I get it!,but a gentle reminder to wear one would have been nicer, I had other issues and just found them rude.
The elevators are slow as molasses!!
Nice lovely few days despite some hiccups.
