Wow! I guess we should have known when we arrived late in the evening (8/3) and the shoreline of the gulf view from our balcony appeared to be very, very dark. Beautiful sunrise...shoreline was still very dark and there were only a couple of people in the water. We ventured on down to the beach curious about what is going on, we pay our $25 for our beach chairs ($25 per day/$5 per hr) and walk closer to the water - it was so bad! Thick green pulp with no end in sight. It was like the invasion of the moss people - those in the water was covered! Yuck! Explains why everyone was at the pool-which by the way was in dire need of a good cleaning and EXTRA chlorine. This was our first stay with Hampton so not sure how this property compares with others but the guests here were primarily families with very young children and LOTS of teenagers. The room (9th floor corner suite) appeared to be clean and the beds were comfy. We decided not to stay a 2nd night and left by noon. Beach was a huge dissppointment.
