The building we were in did not have elevators and it was not stated by the staff on arrival. I called the resort 2 times asking if the island pool was heated and both times I was told "yes". They do have one heated pool but it is not the pool with the island and swim up bar (which were closed but again, not stated). I assume everyone complained and they decided to opened the island swimming pool for one day but it was too clod to swim in it. The island grill was not opened. Dinner at the fish house was delicious but the service was not good at all. Very very slow and unorganized. We slent 2 hours on dinner and watch as others just left without getting their food. If we go back it will not be during the summer months (when it will be packed I am sure) and ask for the building in the back by the beach (it has elevators).

I absolutely loved our stay. Being that we were still in a pandemic, everything was according to CDC. My first Impression was the fragrance in the hotel.. Loved it. Now we did stay at the same hotel last year sometime and they were in the middle of renovation so that was not good. but what the end result was that it was very nicely remodeled. (hardwood floors, fixtures, etc). I did have to ask for a coffee maker, iron & ironing board, but they gladly had it in the room when I returned within an hour. Some of the staff couldve had a more friendlier greeting but that was one or two at the desk. but overall, I will be going back..
