We just returned home from a two night stay at the Windrift and will NEVER stay there again. The room, although recently remodeled, had a rug that constantly felt damp; a refrigerator that did not work; a teeny balcony that was constantly wet due to the drip from the air conditioner from the room above. Also, we were on the first floor, directly across from the kitchen door of the Golden Inn. Every morning, the trash truck came to empty their enormous trash receptacles that were right outside our room! The pool was so dirty with hair and sand that my daughter did not want to swim in it! I could go on and on but you get the picture. If the price was $100 per night, I'd understand the sub-par quality, but $350 per night???? And that was just a basic room. I can't imagine what it costs for an ocean view. Total rip-off. NEVER AGAIN.
