I picked this particular hotel because it has its own semi private beach there's just a wooden walkway from the hotel right out to the beach the water is the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico ..while I was there we had multiple days of manatees gently swimming by , also dolphins several times ...it was a family friendly hotel also many of the children had a great time putting on their snorkel mask and waiting into the water and looking at all the different types of fish lots of shells for people to pick up and enjoy ..the hotel has lounge chairs for free..the umbrellas you pay extra for ,but I found that to be fine and the the guys that set that up also deal with waverunners ,kayaks etc. there's also several excursions and parasailing that are right off at beach ..across the street quite a few restaurants and shopping and the whole island is very laid-back so it's a very relaxed atmosphere .. I had some in room dining that was delicious and every morning had breakfast at the buffet which was also great .. The other thing I found at this hotel is that many of the employees even though it was their job they were genuinely happy to help out and went above and beyond if you asked for any requests.. I love that kind of atmosphere ..:my room was a sunset balcony room so I got to enjoy that every evening ..all in all a great experience .. Looking forward to be back again soon thank you !
