Recent guest reviews

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.

Rooms are very comfortable and clean ( the hotel has only been opened a week when we stayed there). Staff are very nice. The breakfast at the hotel is awesome especially since kids 12 and under are free! Hotel is right on the beach and the lazy pool is so much fun. Very close to everything. Definitely will stay there again.

Staff were warm friendly and very attentive. Having the ability to change our beach chairs and umbrellas back to the room was great. Also the hotel had a never ending stock of beach towels so we never had to worry with cleaning out the sand ourselves
