I liked that everything was in a convient location. I would have been nice to have the hotel ofcer beach chairs on the beach without an additional cost

The main pool, tiki bar and daily music is great. The location is perfect and you can walk to bars, restaurants, grocery & liquor. We've stayed many times and are usually very happy, but in May 2021, I must say the front desk person was truly not pleasant in 3 separate encounters & the quiet pool was dirty even by early afternoon. Hope this was just a fluke.

noisey

I like to think of myself as not very picky. So the good is location 5 stars on location. The poolside bar was 5 stars. The pool was gross and needed to be cleaned 1 star. The bathroom on level 1 was an awful odor 1 star. The hotel as a whole just stinks. I still had fun, I make the best of out all situations. Has nothing to do with covid either (just was a really dirty hotel.) Needs to be thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom.

The beach was beautiful but the hotel provided no beach chairs or umbrellas. You had to rent them from a private vendor. There was no maid service available for our one week stay.there was no on sight restaurant as described in the Orbitz description.

This was a nice hotel to stay at. It’s an older hotel that’s been remodeled. The water did go out for a couple of hours due to the fact they were replacing a water heater. But overall I’d stay here again, this place have live music everyday out by the pool and tiki bar (I noticed people from other surrounding hotels would come down and listen). Pro’s: - Live Music Everday - 2 pools & Hot Tube - Beach Towels are provided - Tiki Bar - A lot of Outdoor seating Con’s - Most staff don’t wear mask ( keep in mind it’s Florida) -Hot Water heater broke - Restaurant is closed permanently -Bathroom’s are small

Love our stay here. Staff very accommodating if we needed anything. As with covid they didn't clean rooms every day. Beds comfy and our room had a great veiw. Over night staff person helped us at checkout when our ride to airport dud not come.

Our room was great but next to trash pickup early in am got noisy

Room were clean. Workers were helpful. Food was also very good. We are going to go back again

I was not happy with my check in process took about 30-45mins by time we finally got in our room. First room we where sent to door wouldn’t unlock so my boyfriend had to go get another key from the front desk. We opened the room and it was either someone else’s or not cleaned. So he went back down stairs to tell them . They then said they where sorry they would upgrade us to a gulf view room and told him the room number. They then took that back and just gave us a different room not upgraded, because they claimed it wasn’t there mess up it was orbitz. So we get a key to another room not upgraded, and the door won’t open to it either. Boyfriend goes back down comes back up with different keys but now they said we have to wait for maintenance to change the battery on the door. Mind you all this time I had to use the restroom I just drive three hours and just wanted to get in my room. So I then went down and asked if there was a bathroom I could use because I couldn’t wait any longer. We stayed two nights both where noisy, however the last night from 10pm—12 there was doors slamming yelling and people talking loud. The walls where very thin because it sounded like the other guests where in our kitchen area. Pool area was nice though and good location for the beach.

Pool cloudy and dirty. Probably the single most important area of the property failed for cleanliness. Restaurant very good. Room nice. Probably would not return because of pool. Front desk not real helpful. Long hold times . Requested early check in. After the fact I may have requested a new Maserati. It was not happening. Paid almost 200.00 in the summer for a dirty pool. To bad for me.

loved the location and the staff. The "kitchen" was pathetic. Do not pay extra for the kitchen, it was a complete waste of money.

We love the tiki bar here right on site. I’m not a cold-water person so the hot-tub is a life savor for me and my husband and mom enjoyed it too since it was a bit chilly this time. We also enjoyed the Italy restaurant that’s there for dinner one night. And our housekeeper Nancy was fantastic, she kept us well stocked and taken care of and had such a caring attitude with it. We enjoyed having her around :)

Great location and friendly staff. Very clean. Only issue would be we had adjoining room and could head neighbor now and then

Great beach resort without resort fees! The friendly and responsive staff really made our stay so pleasant. Within a few minutes of calling about a maintenance issue a friendly smiling staff member came to help us. They genuinely care about their guests here. WiFi worked well in the room, around the pool, and even at the beach in front of the hotel (our daughter was finishing up her online classes). We had a nice view of the pool and the beach/ the Gulf from our balcony area. Location was awesome right at the beach. It was fun to watch the kites at the beach area and great sunset views. You can rent a cabana on the beach. Live music every afternoon at the pool area and great little tiki hut bar. Only complaints: kitchen was outdated (but worked for our basic cooking needs) and recycling is not great in this area (we went to Lake Seminole County Park to take our recyclables): https://www.pinellascounty.org/solidwaste/recycling-directory/pdf/recycling_directory.pdf We will definitely be back!
