This relatively new, moderately priced branch of the AMResorts family—which welcomes children—has style as well as a gorgeous 700-yard beachfront. The lobby's contemporary interior design is fresh and vibrant with attention-getting details such as shell room dividers. Happily send kids off to the Explorers Club, tweens and teens to the Core Zone. Parents can then enjoy the stunning Spa by Pevonia, working out in the fitness center, or taking a Zumba class. Some feel that the animation team is too much, others get into it. Cuisine options are many as there are eight restaurants of varying levels, all reservation-free. Inquire about the Dine Around Program, where you can have privileges at partner resorts in the area. The Preferred Club is a reasonable bump-up; the contemporary hors d’oeuvres and high-end liquor in the Club lounge could be the deal breaker. Also some guests do feel that standard rooms are too basic.
