Sitting on the beach is but one of the piquant charms here, but given all that's inside the hotel and its expansive spaces, you might not even make it out there. The focus of the resort might be described as the bountiful appearance of water, as there's an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a whirlpool, and outdoor water slides in the warmer months. The property has 405 units, many of which have an ocean view (don't be shy, go ahead and put in a request, although these rooms can be $10–$40 more per night). The basic doubles are moderately priced and they can accommodate three to four people comfortably. Those looking for relaxing and meditative personal services should visit the Hibiscus Spa, which offers up foot baths, massages, facials, and mani-pedis. The resort's Oceans on 82nd Restaurant has a well-rounded breakfast, including health-conscious "Fit" items, highlighted by French toast dipped in corn flakes, and a "Fast Fare" duo of eggs, scrambled and topped with cheddar cheese, served with sliced tomatoes and bacon, ham, or sausage.
