The staff truly went above and beyond to tend to our needs, as one of our travelers was a Type One Diabetic, in need of some extra attention at certain moments. This was especially helpful as the staff was prompt to help out in any way that they could, from supplying extra snacks and juices to checking in to ensure all was well at certain points throughout our stay. This made our group feel very cared for and brought with it a huge sense of ease.

The Truck Beach Restaurant
The food truck was right off of the beach and is best classified as Mexican fast food with a touch of American flare. From tacos and quesadillas to hamburgers and fries, it was the perfect place to grab a quick bite to eat poolside or in between meals.
The food truck was the easiest and our favorite option for a quick snack or meal at the times where the buffet was closed for meal prep. We often ate at “off” times, where the buffet was closed to prep for lunch or dinner, so the food truck made for an excellent grab-and-go lunch or snack before dinner. Order from the poolside menu, or grab a pre-made wrap or salad from the grab-and-go shelf!
