    Is the nearby beach calm enough for paddleboarding or is it a surf beach?

    Definitely great for paddle boarding. The bigger waves are in a section towards the north end of the beach.

    You mentioned you only ate dinner at the hotel one night, so I assume there were dining options around the resort? We like to go out adventuring a bit...just curious if you visited any other good eateries you'd recommend?
