    This hotel is a real diamond in the rough. The location is just a quick stroll to great restaurants and bars that all have live entertainment and dancing. The beach has super soft and clean sand, and hotel provides lounge chairs, beach towels and umbrellas. The beach bar overlooks the pool and beach and is protected during the odd afternoon downpour; you can wait out the rain and have a drink at the same time. Breakfast is served until noon which means no rush to get out of bed.Staff are super accommodating, no matter what the request. No coffee maker or microwave in room so plan ahead and bring a kettle.

    No Coffee Maker?

    The location of this hotel is beautiful and the people who work here were very helpful and always friendly. We were dissatisfied with our hotel room because it had only one chair for two guests and it did not have a coffee maker. How can an expensive hotel room lack these common amenities?

    We really enjoyed being able to walk right out of the ground room and onto the beach. The restaurant attached to the pool was delicious and staff there were also great. I was a little annoyed we came early and was told I’d get a call when my room was ready and never did. I never expect early check ins but while waiting we went into the ocean and my poor kids got stuck by jelly fish (About 4 times on both kids in the first 10 minutes) I went to see at 3:00 if the room happened to be ready (since at 12:30 she said they would put a rush on it) and she said it wasn’t ready and when I said I’m a little panicked my kids are in a lot of pain she had zero reaction. Luckily there’s a publix right beside so read what to do for pain. Then at 4:00 I went back to see if it was ready yet and from a new person I was told “of course it is it’s 4:00”. The hotel we stayed in is across the street from their parking and they happened to park my car the complete opposite corner so I said “so I have to pack all the luggage to my room?” I’m sure I sounded like a princess but I even said my husband was busy with crying kids stung multiple times each and in a harsh tone her response was “well other people manage it” Overall very nice property and location, great price.

    Mediocre. You are forced to use the Valet Parking , but the parking lot is at their front door. No need to have the valet deliver your car. The pictures of the hotel shows the rooms have balconies, but only the ocean view rooms have a real balcony. AC very loud, but efficient. The problem is it is situated about 4 feet away from the bed and it blows the cold air directly on it. Beach employees are very nice and accommodating. Rooms are clean and well serviced. All in all, fair value for the money.
