Marina ~ Lemoore, CA
Pool: Wish they had an actual hot tub at the pool. Otherwise well kept and beautiful. Not a topless optional pool, which is fine for the beach are
Beach: Cleaned and well kept every day. Less crowded than the family friendly beaches next door.
Food/Drink: Fruity cocktails were very sweet and light in alcohol, best to stick with wine, beer or straight rum and coke.
Entertainment: Resort entertainers need to work on their choreography sequences as well as the sound system. But the Michael Jackson tribute show was great
Accommodations: Very nice and spacious rooms, however, the complex doesn't offer any ocean view rooms even though the Ambar is the closest to the beach.
Service: The resort offered 2 computers with free internet but the service wasn't always reliable and staff did not know how to reboot.
Overall: Staying at the Adult-only Ambar resort allowed us visitation and privileges at the other 3 resorts where they did not have the same benefit.
