Our family trip

The hotel's location is excellent. We enjoyed our 4 days there, except one event related to unusual cleaning person who did not do a good job. The front desk staff are very helpful.

great couple getaway

We last minute booked a room for Valentine's day and getting checked into the room was fast and smooth. The wind was really bad so being on the top floor we had a little motion sickness but that's not the hotels fault. Breakfast buffet was simple but the food was good. Overall I would stay there again.

Week long trip

My family and I stayed at this hotel for one week, I was pleased with staff and their helpfulness. There is a no smoking policy but we understood e-cigs (vapor) were allowed until a call to our room alerted us otherwise. This was an issue with staff until I had to physically prove I was puffing on a fake cig and not a real one.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is right near the pier and a relatively short walk to and from dinner/ shopping.

Weekend get away

This was a wonderful experience! The hotel staff were very nice and when we walked in our room it smelt like cleaning products (which I loved)! The best part was probably the buffet breakfast that was included with our stay. It was so yummy! Oh! And of course the view and proximity to the beach! The pillows were super soft. It was the best sleep I had got in forever! The only improvement that needs to be made is to the hot tub because well it's colded than the pool. Other than that I have absolutely nothing negative to say! We will DEFINITELY be returning to this hotel and are considering making a trip to this hotel an annual thing.
