Excellent, would stay here again

The hotel was easy to find and the valet parking was included in our price which was excellent. We were upgraded as our room wasn't ready when we arrived so that was good too. The room overlooked the pool which was excellent - with a poolside bar. Complementary towels were available which was a nice touch. We ordered breakfast to be delivered to our room and this was served with a smile by the lovely lady who delivered it and it came with a table that we could sit at. The only downside was that we had to walk along a dismal outside corridor to get to the door to our room and for some reason we didn't feel comfortable on this corrridor. Other than that it was an excellent experience and we would recommend this hotel

Awesome vacation

The experience was good but had to switch rooms due to an owner keeping up noise and since they were an owner nothing couldn't be done but make me move to the 4th floor.

Last minute beach trip

I needed a weekend getaway and an accessible room on short notice. I wanted to be in this location. I couldn't find one for less than three nights at this hotel by calling them or going to their web site. Using another online travel site I got a great accessible room for two nights at a reasonable rate, only 4 days in advance. I would use this site to return to this property again.

Fantastic couples getaway

This resort was amazing. My husband and I stayed here with another couple and had so much fun. The resort was extremely clean and the staff were so accommodating. We enjoyed using the saltwater pool and visiting the beach close by. I wish that the poolside bar had been open longer than 4 hours each day, but besides that, the resort was amazing. I highly recommend this place to everyone. It is conveniently located to the attractions and restaurants.

Overall pretty nice place to stay

The hotel it self is pretty nice. The kids loved playing at the pool. The were a couple of complaints though. The shower just needed a good cleaning and touch up. The shower door was damaged but not the end of the world. The only other complaint is they needed more staff.
