I enjoyed my stay very much, the staff are all very nice, professional. My room was perfectly clean. The beach area, hot tub and pool areas neat and clean. There was repair work being done on one pool, but it didn't begin too early to disturb sleep.

Love the Cabana rooms on the beach level.withyour own picnic table, lounge chairs , umbrella, charcoal grill. Near Gulf Pier Park.Staff is friendly and helpful. Off season prices are very reasonable. I like it because it is not like the big high-rise hotels.

This was the 3rd time for us staying here, and every time it's consistently a great experience. This is not one of the Mega hotels or chains, this is a more laid back and comfortable experience.
