Although it’s not next to water it was very comfortable and an easy drive to outlets,food and the village! Used the putting greens after breakfast.

The restaurant was closed no breakfast either. I was really disappointed

The heater wasn’t working. I called the front desk and I did what they told me to do but it still didn’t warm up the room

It was great! Location could be a bit better but overall great place and clean rooms!

There are no in room safes and this presented a problem. Breakfast was limited and not worth the amount being charged. The staff was amazing, especially Todd who went out of his way to help us.

Located in a great location. Close to good food locations

Very clean, attentive staff, excellent accommodation

Great place to stay! Clean, bright, great staff and good food and drinks.

Front desk staff needs to give better service. Not a single front desk personal smiled even one time. No greeting at all. They don’t even look up. Lack of concern and absolutely no sense of urgency. Seems like the entire staff need a dose of happiness, didn’t look like anyone enjoys their work.

Nice reception and breakfast lounge and staff. Air conditioner in the room makes lot of noise which needs to be fixed. But overall excellent experience and we will certainly stay in the future.

Great hotel to stay at! Staff is always friendly and accommodating and rooms are always clean. I was disappointed to see they took away breakfast buffet but overall happy to stay at holiday inn
