It’s an old beat up hotel that’s going through some remodel facelift. It’s very overpriced for what you get. Rooms for example are a super 8 in comparison. The ONLY nice thing about this hotel is that is a step away from the beach. Besides that I am extremely disappointed. For 150 a night I have stayed in way better places. The staff do what they can. Not their fault.

Location is good. Management is sub par. The owner needs to see himself.

The pool omg love the layout and how it’s almost like the schlitterbahn pool

They gave me a wrong room and walked in and a couple was having sex had to go back to front office to get another room. Jacuzzi was super cold !

Hotel advertised heated pool and it was under construction, not in service. Door handle bars on the balcony broken, safety hazard. walking deck leading to the beach, half done still under construction. Not as advertised

The pool is amazing. It’s great that the beach is just a walk away.

The location is really good, the staff very nice, the ladies at the front were the best! The pool is clean and the prices for the drinks and food were affordable.

I was very happy with the unit I was in for 2 weeks. Yes it could be renevated but it was very pleasing for what we expected. My only concern was the fact that none of the maids and/or cleaning people could speak English, I do feel if they work in our country they should be learning.

First of all I booked a room w/2 beds 3 months in advance. I get there it’s only 1 bed. I called to the front desk and the girl told me because I booked through Orbitz that’s what was only available. I was confused on to why there would not be anything available even with a 3 month in advance. I guess u get the crums of the hotel if you book through a 3rd party. Not to mention walls and doors were stayed like they haven’t been cleaned in ages. Also The mirror was rusted in the RR. Looked for like a motel than a resort. Very disappointed with the experience. Will not be back at this hotel.

The room super far 4th floor in the very back no view, what so ever. I had asked for room with a view. The hotel gave me what ever . When I asked why didn't I get what I wanted she said that those only ones with a view were the luxury suits .

Great service, from the moment you arrive they are ready to pick you up from the parking lot to take you to the lobby. Very attentive personnel. Awesome stay!

Great experience 2nd time staying here and it did not let us down. It has a nice heated pool. Just a few steps and you are at the beach. Wesley the manager is great always ready to make everyone's trip enjoyable. Rooms are nice spacious and very comfortable. Definitely would recommend!! I know we will be back soon!!

Wasn't able to check in until 4:30 due to room not being ready. Parking lot too far from hotel. Elevator broke down with one of our guests in it. Lock on the door was broken. Fixed after multiple complaints. Took a day and a half to fix, leaving one of our guests to stay in the room and missing all the activities For that time. Drier broken and never tended to. Ice machine broken. Elevator broke down, leaving one of our guests trapped. Not enough towels. Marks on the walls. Cabinet facing peeling off. I expected more from a supposed presidential suite.

This hotel is right off the causeway, easy to get to, not to far from all the action on the beach. The pool is a good size and looks beautiful with great view of the beach. The staff was very accommodating and spoke English! I booked a "Deluxe Suite" which wasn't a suite at all. Just a basic double room. It had a very small refrigerator, one cup coffee pot, small table and sofa bed. It is nicely furnished and clean which is all that matters to me. My main complaint is that it did not have WiFi in the room. We had to step out onto the balcony to get service. I will have to research the "45% off" claim for room rates. This is my second stay here and I want to love it but it just not quite there yet for me. I'll give it another try though because I know they are trying to make it first class. The other small complaint is that the parking lot is quite a distance from the hotel but if you are lucky, you can catch a golf cart to drive you up.

Staff we're friendly, elevator very slow but over priced.
