Great stay. Beachfront walking distance too everything. No room services no problem. Loved it

Great

I loved the view, I felt hotel was under staffed no room service was a bummer and no room service fresh towels coffee without asking was no something I expected.

THERE WAS A POWER OUTAGE WHEN WE CHECK-IN, AND VERY POOR HANDLING OF THE SITUATION BY THE STAFF AT THE FRONT DESK. WE WERE BASICALLY LEFT ALONE TO WALK IN THE DARK WITH THE FLASHLIGHT TO OUR ROOMS. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN COMPLIMENT FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER TO REACH OUT TO EVERYONE TO PROVIDE HIS FEEDBACK ON THE OUTAGE. THE SITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND YOU HAVE TO WALK AROUND THE CONSTRUCTION FOLKS TO GET TO YOUR ROOM. THE CLEANING LADIES WERE NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL AND ASKED FOR ADDTIONAL TOWELS.

Great location, still undergoing a few renovations that will make the property more up to date

The property is quite dated and not exactly oceanfront as advertised. We paid extra for in partial oceanfront view which was sort of a joke. If you stood n the far corner of our balcony and you could see a sliver in the water past another building and two streets. The surcharges for parking and resort fees were exorbitant as the gym was small and outdated and the pool average.

Hotel was beautifully maintained with so much to do. Location was ideal for us.

Ocean front room with large balcony off master suite. Only down side was that we were not able to check in until after 4 even after requesting earlier checkin

It’s annoying to have many additional fees added on; parking, resort fee.

Really bland and while some staff tried, overall the experience was very disappointing for the price. Not worth it.

Parking me conbraron por Valet y no recibi el servicio

The place was big and the staff was great I will recommend

Fantastic location. Absolutely beautiful. Friendly helpful staff.
