"Business Owner"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Service was not great I asked for ice and water and they were supposed to bring it to the room. They never came called or anything. Can't pay cash for anything has to be charged to the room. I feel like the hotel is way overrated for what I paid! Everything was way too expensive. I won't be booking there again.

"8th year of coming to BR,missed complimentary breakfast this year."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Ocean front resort with good service and accommodations. No longer have the complimentary breakfast we have been used to.too expensive for a large family staying a week..less expensive options nearby. Great beach, many family activities available at the resort.renovations from last year's hurricane nearly complete. Beautiful landscaping with flowers, palms, many varieties of cactus all tastefully displayed.
