Stopping for our Cruise

This is a average hotel for beach goers who wish to save some money. There is nothing bad about the hotel, just nothing is impressive. Security is a main concern, as both doors (patio and front door) seem to not close well. Neither of them were sealed well, if at all, causing a huge vacuum to slamming the doors shut. This also leads to a very humid room, which the AC can't quite keep up with. The room was clean, and the staff was very nice.

It's a beach front hotel. Sitting on the balcony and watching sunrise is a really amazing experience. Walking distance to see the volcano on Rain Forest Cafe. My kids really enjoy it.

Great location, horrendous service

Great location, right across from the beach and near restaurants. Room was clean and maid service was attentive. Front desk service....was the worst I've encountered at a hotel. The bellhop finally got us a room key after 3 hours of waiting though we had reservations booked months in advance. The day after we checked in we realized that we needed a parking pass that we were never told about. Luckily we weren't towed before we got one. There are too any hotels on the island to deal with this one. Oh and show up without reservations! They'll give you a room right away for $30 a night less than the early, online, no refund price. I saw people come in and get this deal while I was STILL waiting for the room I reserved.

Overpriced, underwhelming

The hotel is located directly across from the beach, where there are plenty of lifeguards, rentals (chairs, umbrellas, jet skis, etc.), and concessions. The location is great, but the hotel itself isn't all that amazing. The rooms are outdoor entry (can't really tell from pictures), and the restaurant is overpriced for what it is. The staff isn't all that friendly either. In fact, the dining manager actually walked right into our room trying to ask about a room charge. Turns out they didn't see the card we left on file. There are plenty of other hotels that are as nice or nicer for the same price or even less! I don't think I'd go back.
