Anniversary stay
It was only an overnight stay for our 30th wedding anniversary, but we enjoyed it. All the staff is courteous and professional. We’ll come back next year.

Disappointing room switch
Typical Hilton cleanliness and professional service. My only complaint is that I did not get the room I reserved. I reserved a deluxe king and received a double occupancy room with 2 double beds. I could tell there was a problem when the two people at the front desk conferred, and the supervisor said “just over-ride it.” They did not ask if a double would be ok. We didn’t know we weren’t getting the room we wanted until we entered our room. It was our 45th wedding anniversary and I wanted everything to be perfect. I have read that bookings take second place to direct bookings and club members. It must be true. Disappointing.

Poor 2.0
Would not recommend! Check in was at 4 pm Got there around 430 room still wasn’t ready, no big deal we walked down to the rain forest cafe. Got a call after 530 to say it was ready. We got our keys and entered our room that had somebody in it! We were very embarrassed! The front desk tried to give us another room for the same price with a parking lot view! We complained about the price then they tried to give us a small discount for it that we rejected. We ended up just staying somewhere else because the hotel looks NOTHING like the pictures on their website. It is very out dated and the balcony isnt really a gulf view they are on the sides of the hotel! The only positive thing about the hotel is location! I do not recommend!

Fun in the sun.
The employees are the best. They are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. The rooms are dated and the water pressure is bad.

Considering COVID, it was great. They did good on keeping common areas cleaned. Unable to clean rooms when staying multiple nights.

Horrible rooms, fun pool area
To start off, this was last minute trip. We choose Hilton because it was only hotel that showed a king bed available with an ocean view. So I was willing to part with $300. We got there around 6:30 to check in and were told that by getting the room thru it did not guarantee us the room we "purchased" That they only have double beds, and next time to call the hotel directly to book because they can give me a better rate.. like $175 instead of the $300. But the guy was really nice and gave us free parking pass and breakfast in the morning. He also said he had a double room with pool and ocean view. Ok fine. Get to the room.. as soon as you open the door it smelled like someone had been smoking in there for years. It was really bad. So I opened the balcony door to try and air out, to notice that the pool and ocean view was if we stood in the very corner of the balcony and kinda peered over. Oh and not to mention the AC unit from above was dripping all over the balcony. So we called front, got moved. Now our $300 king bed, balcony ocean view was a double bed with the parking lot view. Whatever it is was it is. But... we noticed the room was really warm. So we cranked up the AC and decided to go to the pool. I noticed that the room smelled musty but I thought it was because the room was hot. Came back from pool, 3 hrs later. still hot and smelled worse. Oh thats because the AC was leaking all under the carpet. A positive note, the pool area was fun. But the room, not
