  • Kris was so very helpful getting everything organized during these weird Covid times! She was very professional and made everything really easy. She made us feel like royalty the entire weekend of our wedding. Kohl at the front desk is the most professinal and polite front desk attendant I have ever met and was super helpful, and remembered who we were and details about us all weekend, providing that personalized touch. Sloan and Matt were also extremely professional and amazing bell boys, who also provided that personalized service and made us feel extremely special on our wedding weekend. Aly in the seawater spa did an amazing job on my wedding nails and picked the perfect color for me. Our server in the restaurant for dinner was also fantastic, handled our party of 12 with grace,and no one was ever without a refilled drink. All around the experience was amazing and we will likely stay for anniversaries to come!!
