Do not book directly with resort-they will scam you. I booked on Monday directly on website to avoid any problems, they had cyber Monday discount. My payment went through, I received confirmation number. 24 hrs later I got an email saying that my reservation was not complete and to call if I want to compete it. I called today and they told me that my reservation was cancelled because they never received payment (I checked my cc-transaction went through and the payment is there). So, if I want to make a NEW reservation the price is higher now because they will not honor the price I booked with in the first place. SO, this was my experience-I WILL NEVER BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THIS RESORT AGAIN.

Hotel's Favorite
Well, where to start. Has been awhile since we have been on a vacation. A great one at that. The Covid thing has put a damper on travel. We booked thru AAA travel out of Fayetteville with Lauren. She was a great help in finding the right spot. We flew out of Charlotte on American Airlines. Getting thru airports are a mess. We had transport to the hotel by a driver that could have driven in nascar. He was a driver that knew his way around for sure. When we arrived we were greeted by the general manager with a very friendly smile and a glass of great champagne. To the check in desk with no problems. We had room 10106 ocean front with the greatest of views. Room was extremely clean. Full bar with large bottles of top shelve delights. Fridge was full of snacks, coke, diet coke, water and mixers. Air worked great. Had soaking tub present. Had a great rainfall shower..Plenty of towels to spare! Everything a person could want was present in the room with a king size bed. There were many well maintained pools with plenty of seating in and out of the sun. The beach was close by. Sand was brown in color and the ocean water was warm and the normal Atlantic ocean type of color.. Only bad part was all the seaweed ! Tons of it!-----Their beach front was very long for long strolls. There were numerous bars around and plenty of staff that would fill your needs for drinks. Are staff always were smiling and helpful with any questions or needs that you may have. There are ten restaurants on site with anything that your stomach could desire. Plates were full and they would give you more if you needed. Again let me tell you that the staff was the best i have ever encountered. They made sure you were taken care of from all aspects of your stay. I could keep on and on telling you how great this experience was, but the best would be for you to travel to this great spectacular resort. They do take excellent care of you. This was an unforgettable stay

Resort location is right on the beach. Amazing views. The grounds were very well maintained. The restaurants do not require a reservation which is a plus. Amazing food choices at all restaurants that we tried. All the staff are so friendly and always smiling. Excellent service.

My husband and I travel to resorts all over the world. Don’t get me wrong we had a fabulous time but, this would not be one of our top favorite places to stay. The beach is beautiful but ocean was to rough and were not allowed to swim. We did not receive turn down service and maid only came by one time to clean room. The snacks in minibar were sad. The food at The Lobster house was disappointing. These may be little things that may not bother others. But, to us it’s about the small touches that help with the whole experience. The resort itself is beautiful and the staff is friendly. The spa was Amazing!
