I loved the location. Having beach views from bed made the trip very relaxing, especially on days that the weather didn’t allow for beach time. The hotel was under-staffed for the amount of guests. I had to wait 2 hours to get into my room after checking in due to the staff being behind cleaning the rooms. When I requested to get those two hours back by having late checkout, I was denied. Other than that, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

I visited the property during the Coronavirus quarantines and stay at home orders. The facility was staffed up to meet my needs but it was obvious there was a reduction of staff in housekeeping and the dining facilities. Housekeeping services were vetted by the front desk as to the items and services you were requesting. After told what I needed a staff member was knocking on my door within 15 minutes. Food service was suffering from a shortage of food on hand due to diminished deliveries. The cook and the manager on duty were fantastic at making the best of a tough situation. BTW, the Ahi Tuna was incredible! This is a beautiful property and I hope to visit it again, highly recommended. J. Gabbert

Nice outdoor pool, friendly staff and good breakfast cooked to order

Very nice clean rooms. Clean lobby. Helpful staff.

Went through Obitz and had where we were supposed to have breakfast included in our stay but called front desk to check and they said no we did not so called Orbitz and they said no but I have a snap shot where I did get it included in price . Be nice if they had some lights out by pool and between the hotel where the long yellow chairs were with fire pits . Staff was friendly. Also be nice if had washers and driers in ice area on each floor. Need more disability parking . Food from restaurant was wonderful . Had a lot of activities out side for kids. Pool was nice. DJ was great.

We wish that we could have stayed longer and we didn’t have to be in Orlando the next day.

The property was very clean. The staff was friendly. The pool area is amazing, and the beach access was close and easy!

Staff was polite and friendly. The AC had a musky smell every time it kicked on.

It was really nice overall. The lazy river was really nice and the beach is just a few feet away.

Clean and great and friendly service. Great access to the beach. Nice pool. Will stay again. Will recommend to friends and family.

Clean and modern accommodations. Helpful, friendly staff.

Great hotel, clean and friendly! Needs coffee selection at hotel restaurant.

Lazy river too small to call “a river.” That feature was key in selecting your hotel.

New Hotel! Very clean, cool lazy river pool and right on the beach!

My sister and I greatly enjoyed the balcony ocean view. Room service was excellent. Food great. However the dinning area became crowded in the a.m. and needed more staff. Those who did serve were very overworked.

I arrived before the check in time and the receptionist found me a room that was available to check in early, which I appreciated. The hotel is beautiful. The pool with the lazy river was great. The fire pit was cozy. I loved my experience here. Will come agsin

Check in was seamless, hotel is modern & nice, room was clean & comfortable, breakfast was good, the only complaint is the pocket door in the bathroom. Both my boyfriend & I slammed our hands in the door. Beware!!!! The location is excellent. For our short stay we really enjoyed ourselves.

Great hotel, staff and location. Very nice breakfast. Loved the early morning coffee served in lobby. Enjoyed our balcony with fantastic view of gulf.

The hotel is beautiful the staff was friendly, and helpful with information about the city and directions to different attractions.

Nice hotel right on the beach. Staff is super helpful and hotel is very clean.
