This is a happening place! It is a small hotel with small, but clean rooms. It is interesting that for the whole time we were there, I never saw a male around the front desk area--only 20-something, beautiful young women, who were full of smiles and personality, but not particularly skilled or professional. The lobby has steel drum music and lots of young people hanging out at the bar. I rate the place a solid 3-1/2 stars and recommend it for young folks on college break or a group of the young singles out for a good time.
One thing I did not know before I arrived--the beach directly in front of the hotel is not part of the resort. The beach has a private vendor, and chairs and umbrellas must be rented on a daily basis. The beach is also covered in garbage, very crowded and has homeless people sleeping on it. Just an FYI.
The pool area was nice, somewhat but crowded--one day there were no chairs for us to use. The pool itself had a slime from sunscreen floating on the top--I did not go in the water. The pool area was understaffed for the crowd.
The bathrooms are very small and have fake tile around the tub. It looks real until you look closely and realize it is formica. But, the rooms are quite clean.
The gym is a tiny room with a couple of machines off the pool with 7 foot ceilings. It felt like a cave. Not appealing. There is no spa, which was disappointing. We did go to a great place, though, called Massage by Design at 959 West Ave. Highly recommended.
I doubt I would go back, but then again, I am a bit too old for the place. It does not cater to the over-50 crowd.
