Amazing trip!!
I came here fir a weekend with my now fiancé planning on proposing. The staff went above and beyond to make it perfect for us. Arranged our own personal dinner table by ourselves inside due to weather and it was incredible!! Our own butler food was amazing. Perfect evening! The entire staff is incredibly friendly and more than willing to make our stay perfect. We're even thinking of coming back to have our wedding here! Great beach. Great location. Great staff. Great room. Couldn't be happier!
