    Meh.

    Meh. I was told by a friend to stay here and I am less than impressed. Although the current owner has attempted to update the older buildings, the services do not seem to line up with the cost. We were told at check-in that they do not service the rooms unless we requested it. We woke up this morning (prior to 6am) to the sound of a front end loader moving sand on the beach. Really?? This couldn’t wait until 7 or 8am? Also, be careful where you park your car. Lots of birds nesting in the trees over the assigned parking spots.

    Unhygienic, unclean, in poor condition.

    Avoid this place at all costs. The cleanliness is terrible, and definetly doesn’t meet the standards of this kind of resort. The room had a very foul odor, like mold, and we later discovered that the air conditioner was filthy. We found spider webs all around the room, most notably above the bed. The towels and pillow cases had stains all over, some red and some dark. Overall, the room was in incredibly poor condition, with dirty bits everywhere. The walls were peeling off too. On top of this, the resort charges fees for almost everything. Ordering room service incurs a 6 dollar delivery fee, plus 21% service fee, and then on top of that, another 6% charge. Most of the food we had here was pre-made or frozen. The octopus at the barefoot grill was not fresh at all, and tasted foul, and gave us an upset stomach.

    Wouldn’t return for a leisure trip

    Was here for a business conference. Not overly excited about this place. Needs maintenance on the grounds. There was an old squished beer can that sat outside our room the entire length of our 6 night stay. One morning we had no hot water and while it was fixed the hot water was still iffy the remainder of the trip. I would not return for a leisure trip.

    Wonderful time, Font desk staff rocked it

    Stayed at PPRS for w conference. Arrived early room was ready, upgraded our room to be closer to another person in the conference. It rained everyday, not the resorts fault. Front desk workers were fabulous, fixed our concerns with no hassle. Didnt use any pools because or bad weather

    GREAT FAMILY VACATION

    Great resort with so much to do for the family. Pay the extra for the bungalow on the bay. Great time at the bond fire. The food at the restaurants is good with beautiful views. A little updating is needed in the rooms. I would like to see a better spa because they weren’t relaxing at all. Check in customer service could have been better but I understand good help is hard to find.
