GREAT location, OKAY staff and amenities

the location couldn't get any better. this hotel has it's own beach access and showers which is super convenient. the pool is also outstanding. you won't need to be driving anywhere if you get food in advance and store it in the fridge all rooms come with. I did have a microwave issue. I called when i booked, a week before i left, and on my way driving to the hotel to ensure there would be a microwave in my room..guess what was not in my room when i arrived?! A MICROWAVE! i had to call the front desk and complain before they sent one up. the front desk staff handled my rudeness very well, i'll give them that. also, if you look young and you're over 21, don't expect to be serviced promptly at the swim up bar or sunday brunch. we waited at least 20-45 min just to be serviced in order to get our drinks. they definitely judge you and treat you based off how old you look. if you're okay with all of that, then this hotel is worth it! especially if you can get a good deal. i would return!

Nice weekend

We had a very nice weekend here at this hotel. Check in was smooth. Staff was very friendly. Enjoyed the free self parking. Good location on the island. Near the bridge and right nextdoor to the water park. Nice beach access from the hotel Only negatives I could see were prices and star rating. I have stayed at many nice hotels in my travels, and I am not sure this would rate as a 4 star hotel in comparison. Maybe a 3 star would be more accurate. The hotel needs a little facelift and some udating and repairs in my opinion. The Premier room we had was just average in my opinion. It had a tiled floor and a wall unit a/c unit that was a little loud. The bathroom had some bubbled wallpaper issues and there were some cracked tiles in the bathroom and on our balcony. No towels were available despite there being an empty towel hut by the pool. The pool was nice but could be better with some updating. The hot tub area really needs some work. It was small and dirty. There is police looking/construction tape wrapped around a handicap seat used to get people in and out that was very unsightly. I also noticed green algae around the sides. The breakfast service to our room was expensive ($11 for pancakes and similar for other items) so I would bring your own food or eat out. We did like the microwave and fridge in our room though. The drinks by the pool started at around $9.00. As mentioned, we had a nice stay, but for around $200 a night I expected a little more. Not sure how this hotel compares to other island hotels in terms of price. I didn`t see alot of other luxury hotels on the island so maybe this hotel would be a 4 star in comparison. I would stay here again, but I really had higher expectations for the price and star rating.

There was a restaurant nearby called Louie's Backyard that had a really good buffet! $20 for all you can eat prime rib and snow crab legs! The large drinks were on special for only $5.00! Had outdoor seating right on the water! Very good meal!

Fun weekend, but expensive

Spent a summer weekend here and although the hotel was good and the pool was great, 2 days with 2 meals(1 dinner and 1 breakfast for two people) and a few drinks at the poll cost over $1000. Pretty spendy for a weekend. Good beach access, but you have to rent chairs and umbrellas and you are not allowed to take the hotel's towels on the beach. They make you sign for them by the pool and turn them back in there. All of these little extra expenses add up. Pool was great, but overrun with children. One guy sitting on the ledge in the pool lost two drinks in 30 minutes to splashing children. He was pretty frustrated.

great location

I stayed here with three of my friends for the week and had a great time. The location was excellent, right on the beach. The pool area is very nice. They do have parts of the hotel under construction but it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. The room was a bit small and the sink took forever to drain. The water every time we would wash our hands or brush our teeth would just sit there for about 10 min. The staff was friendly. I don't believe the room was worth what we paid but it was a decent clean place to sleep.

Ok

Hotel could use some exterior paint. Poolside bar was ok. Poolside food was lacking. Fire alarm went off in the middle of one evening due to humidity? Hallway carpets were dirty. Room was fine and staff were pleasant.? Beach was nice.

Quick Getaway

The hotel was okay it is older in the inside than it appears to be from the lobby. The pool is open 24/7 which is great and the staff is nice. The pool was suppose to be heated but it didn't seem like it was. This place would be great if the pool was heated and the interior of the hotel was more vaction friendly.

Good Time Friday - Monday April 11th

We showed up and the staff was very friendly. Our room was not ready so we received free breakfast for every day of our trip ($80 - $90 value). When we did get the room it was very nice with a mini fridge, microwave, and the best part a balcony. The room safe didn't work. The hotel was 100% full but it sure didn't seem that way. We only ate in the morning and the food was just okay. The service was below average for the restaurant and bar. Go to the store for food and drinks...Much easier and you save money. The beach was nice and not over crowded. Check out at 1pm on Monday worked well for us. OVerall it was a good stay. Next time I will try somewhere else for the money.
