As you may know, if you read my previous vacation planning post, we recently went to the beach as a family for a mini getaway. Planning a vacation during quarantine can be very tricky but we made the most of the situation because we just really wanted to go to the beach.
First off, the actual hotel was fine. There were a few bumps that we had to overcome but overal the experience wasn't too bad. Due to Covid, the restaurant in the hotel was closed, which meant our included buffet breakfast was cancelled. We were given vouchers by the hotel, however, to a restaurant in town, literally 5 minutes away, for breakfast for both days of our stay, Unfortunately I lost the voucher tickets for our second day and so didn't get breakfast at that particular restaurant. Also, while the food was good when we went to the restaurant our first full day at the hotel, the portions left much to be desired by some. Hubby inhaled his kid sized breakfast in seconds and our friends weren't 100 percent satisfied with the service. Needless to say, so no one went back the second day.
The hotel staff seemed friendly enough given the situation but customer service was not the best. And the rooms were very simple. The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious enough but I guess I expected more from a hotel resort. Honestly, if we weren't in quaranite, this would have been the perfect hotel for our family. There were 4 pools, a tennis court and a pool table. And the property was beautiful. The beach however was not too friendly and so even though the hotelis located on the beach we opted to head to a nicer part of the beach in town.
Overall, the experience was good. We were able to get away for a couple of nights and enjoy some time at the beach. The weather on our second day was glorious and being on the beach was amazing. Our trip was uneventlful and being with friends made it even better. But I cannot wait to plan another trip after quaranine is over.
