We had our family reunion at the Ocean Sky and as you can imagine you will get a lot of opinions from family members. One member, hooty tooty family member who has stayed at the Ritz in the past said "The Ocean Sky is better than the Ritz"! It was clean, it had a lot of things, Location, Beach, Pool, going for it and most importantly it was a GREAT PRICE. We liked it so much that we will be back again for our next reunion!
