Nice enough rooms. Hateful mosquitoes we could have done without. Attractive pool area.
Considering we are club members, we never felt special enough. In other words, service is not one of the memorable things you can expect from Astoria.
What really disappointed us was the beachfront. The loading/unloading area for water sports where thousands of tourists congregated all day every day is right by the hotel's beachfront property, and you can just imagine how horrible it was for a family hanging out by the ocean! Gross. I can not use any other word for the awful picture I have in my head whenever I think about how crowded, noisy and dangerous it was (note that even with Astoria's "marked" area for swimming, the boats loading/unloading tourists were overshooting the boundaries). I hope Astoria does something about this. This 8-day experience makes me regret buying our timeshare.
