Why We Like This Place

This award-winning blufftop resort presides over a pristine beach. The service-oriented staff produces swanky celebrations on the Oceanfront Pavilion, Waterfall Terrace or in the Grand Ballroom. All-inclusive packages, customizable menus and stylish upgrades are offered as well. A spa, fitness center, gift shops and a restaurant featuring New-American cuisine are on site. too. The Cliffs is also pet-friendly—walk down to the sand for wedding photos with your furry ring bearer, or stroll the scenic Shell Beach promenade right outside the hotel door. At night, the lullaby of the waves inspires sweet dreams.
