First thing first if you think this place is going to be TTR forget it, don't even try to compare the two. With that said here is what we thought. But I will try to give you some comparisons. Hotel- Hotel was dated but very well taken care and clean. It was a nicer hotel than TTR, honestly TTR was kind of a dump. We had a room non beach side but still had a view of the ocean. Both sides of the hotel look at the ocean, as this hotel is right on the ocean side. Room had double beds, warning they were small probably like fulls, but you could put them together. Our room also did not have a ninny fridge which was a downside. Shower was nice and big with a glass door. Lighting in the bathroom was also very dark. AC worked great with very little musty smell and wet feeling. I would guess the hotel had around 2-300 rooms so smaller place. Food- We thought the food was great, really didn't have anything bad, food was way better than TTR. Bfast was the typical buffet with omelet station, they had a smoothie bar, and pancake/waffle station. Lunch was in the same place and they had a buffet along with a fajita station, Chinese wok station, pasta station, and burgers and dogs. Very good for lunch. There was also a snack bar that was open from around lunch time till night time. Dinner they had a buffet but was very limited wasn't really the main place to eat, really our only complaint about food. But they did have 4 sit down places, that didn't require reservations and there was no wait. Old barn was a steak house, pier 12 was pasta and seafood, sumo was sushi, and shangrala which was fancy and the only place that had a dress code. Very impressed with food especially since this probably a 3-4 star place. The food quality was echoed by about 10 people we were with, so the complaints about food I've seen I don't get it. Drinks and Bars- drinks were good and found them to be average to stiff on the alcohol. There was a bar in the lobby, so so and kind of flimsy set up. Pool bar(tiki) was good the pool servers were good but very slow better off getting it yourself. The beach also had a small bar, NO POOL BAR. There was a club that opened at night called the sixties bar, it was nice in there and did get hopping a few times. Best bar tender was Moses at the pool bar at night, Carlos and Jose were also good. Staff- Probably some of the friendliest and most polite staff we have been around, from the bartenders to the waiters. House cleaning cleaned our room later after lunch when we were out of the room by 930 every day. Topless- By the beach is fine apparently. But 3 out of the 4 days the girls and girls around us were told to put their tops back on because there were complaints. There was probably 5-6 topless by the pool when it did happen. The complaints seemed to always happen after lunch. Might get away with it if your discreet and don't go running around. Plenty of cheeky/thongs running around though. Beach fine, pool not so much. Atmosphere- It was more laid back and quiet, average age probably in the late 40s to early 50s. The sixties bar got going a few times but they also closed it down at 11 a few times to play bingo WTF. Pool bar had some body shots and some other fun a few times, but it was sporadic. Overall just a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Pool- was nice had a knee high spot and the rest was waist high, pool was perfect temp, also was situated nice to look out at the ocean. There was a hot tub right on the beach, was a descent temp and also looked out at the ocean. You don't really have to worry about getting chairs by the pool. Activities were were quite, exercise, bingo, and pool volley ball which actually didn't look to bad. Obviously no games beyond rated pg. Overall not a bad resort considering it was less than 1000 a person. The atmosphere just wasn't even on the same planet as TTR. We did have fun and would go back, just might be a first choice if were are looking for an upbeat all adult time. Which I will say we refuse to go to places with kids, so this did foot the bill since TTR was closed. So if you want a nicer place and better food this is way better than TTR, but if you want the fun don't go here go to TTR. WIth TTR behind redone I suppose the resort will be a lot nicer along with the food, but well see if they outprice themselves. We're definitely going back to TTR, but do not regret coming here.
