This was the first trip I have made with my dogs. It was such a nice and relaxing weekend. Everyone around was very friendly. Lots to do within walking distance.

Beautiful view but building is falling apart. Needs a full renovation.

Asked for a room on a high floor, months in advance, upon arrival, I was told the room they had planned to give me had a leak and the bed mattress was wet, and they didnt have time to fix it, so they put me on the 1st floor next to the loud and noisy pool, for 5 nights. This was my only vacation all year, bummed.

The location is perfect. You literally walk onto to the beach. No daily housekeeping, which we were unaware of, and weren't told about at check-in. Staff would replenish towels, coffee, cups, and change trash upon request. Balconies are not for sitting. Very narrow. Sliding doors very difficult to open. Decent restaurant. Staff shortage, so breakfast is grab and go. They do send daily texts to let you know. Hotel has so much potential, but it's not being maximized. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. Jay and Tristain very nice, as were the bartenders.

Location

Great.

Lovely view, clean room

Great place. Right on ocean. Good food outdoors or indoors.

Great location! Poor cleaning of room. Mold all over shower head and shower ceiling. Food good in Blu restaurant however, Horrible waiter Chad! Barely saw him. When I looked for him, he was hanging out talking to bartender and manager. SO Bad manager as well! Wont eat there again. Rita's across the street! Amazing food and service! GO THERE!

When we arrived the staff was very nice and check in was a breeze. When we arrived in my room we noticed the door lock was broken and the walk-in shower had leaked and there was water all over the floor. We let maintenance know and they came promptly.The location was excellent close to everything downtown in the proximity to the beach was excellent as well. I would recommend this hotel.

Love it as always. The service is more than 5 stars, the absolute best.

This hotel has a wonderful beach bar with walkout access to the water. The rooms are large and very clean

Great location, nice lobby. Bed was uncomfortable, room was not well kept, toilet had crack, looked like mold was on ceiling at some point. Tv was small with poor reception.

The staff did really well. Jay was outstanding. Victoria cooked up a great omelette. Thank you all.

Staff was very informative and the views are awesome!

My room was bright and cheerful, overlooking the ocean! Quiet, and overall a really great hotel!

Dirty moldy curtains The view was the only nice thing
