Critic Reviews

Fodor's

READ MORE 

This huge resort (1,350 acres) was folded into the Omni hotel chain and transformed by an $85-million renovation and expansion in 2013, including 155 additional oceanfront rooms and stunning oceanfront Beach Club pools. The emphasis is on family-oriented accommodations and activities, including golf courses (54 holes, some oceanfront), 23 Har-Tru tennis courts, and expansive spa facilities.

Frommer's

READ MORE 

You have to give Omni credit for calling their $85-million revamp of the island's largest resort a 're-imagination.' ... With over 1,350 lush beachfront acres of manicured golf greens, bike trails, and a breathtaking coastal wilderness of marshes and lagoons, this massive resort is so spread out that a free tram runs around the grounds every 15 minutes.
