I am fully unfamiliar with the concept of being catered to. We vacation often, but our vacations are similar to how we live at home. This past week, though, we ate meals on a patio 200 feet from the Gulf of Mexico. Our room was less than 30 steps from the beach. It was something I could definitely get used to!
The hotel has recently undergone a $225 million renovation. The surroundings are lush. There are two pools, three miles of white-sand beach and every amenity you could ask for. The most impressive part, though, were the attitudes of the employees. They were so service-oriented. They were kind, hard-working, and friendly.
We saw many young families. The resort certainly thought of everything you could possibly want in a perfect vacation. It would be really fun to take our kids here - there are two pools, tons of activities, and the possibility for pure relaxation!
And the food - I have no words. Every bite was better than the last.
