Great views and helpful staff. Docks are somewhat rundown and the trex decking is slippery (not a marine grade product). The marina is shoaling and we had 4' at low tide on an outer slip. Dredging and a big hotel expansion are coming that will include a much needed outdoor pool. Looking forward to improvements because the marina has so much potential.

Brian was very helpful giving us a tour and checking us in, staff all over were very pleasant. Dinner at 1936 was fantastic and I can wait to visit when the rooftop pool is completed!

We stay here about once or sometimes twice a year. It’s an okay place to stay. Going into the hotel to shower and use the restroom isn’t the most ideal situation for a boat person. It’s a nice facility though. Always things happening. We go because we like to walk the dogs on the boardwalk and look for sharks teeth. Warning- some of the slips on ‘B’ dock are really shallow and we had to move out quite a bit because we ran aground in the first slip.

We arrived by boat. The marina didn't answer the VHF radio when I hailed them. When I called, I was told they don't monitor it! The current into the inlet to the marina is swift and the inlet is very narrow, so you better be precise. The dock is not a floating dock and was full of bird manure. The restaurant staff was pleasant, the food was ok. We did get our appetizers served with our meals, which was a disappointment. The casino was a small room with slots. I'm 50 and was the youngest person in the room by at least a decade. All in all we had an fair experience. Most likely we won't be back.

This is a resort that happens to have boat slips. It's not run like a Marina. They do not answer a hail nor do they send someone out to show you the slip. The slip numbers are nailed in the decking on the docks. So not visible from a boat trying to find a slip. The approach is extremely shallow, less then 4 feet at high tide. It used to be worth the effort to go to the Rod n Reel restaurant. However the food was mediocre as well as service and prices are a bit high. $37 for a lukewarm ribeye. We will not be returning.
