“Not a resort and not on the beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

How they can call this a resort is anyone's guess, much less a beach resort. As far as I could tell, it's nowhere near a public beach. But basically it's a clean motel, reasonably quiet, reasonably comfortable beds and pillows ... it'll do in a pinch on a low budget. It has a just marginally acceptable onsite Tiki bar with a very sad beer selection and disinterested bartenders -- which is more than the typical motel can say. The "continental breakfast" is the biggest joke you've ever seen -- way worse than any normal self-respecting motel's free breakfast -- but a perfect match for this non-resort "resort." The wifi connects your computer to the most constrained Internet connection on the Eastern Seaboard; trying to use the wifi is an exercise in frustration, so don't bother. (The hotel claims they have wifi, and technically they do have a working wifi router, but I've indicated "no wifi" in this review because for practical purposes it's completely useless.) I won't be back if I can help it, but you could do much worse if you're in a jam and this is your best choice.

Very good value however rooms and property need renovating. Breakfast was free for cold foodbut bery expensive if you want anything hot. That was disappointing for my family. The bar was very loud all night long but the pool was nice and clean. Customer service was great I must add. I would stay again but not a place for children.

Spent two nights and called it quits. Booked for 7 nights but my fiancée and I never felt safe. The rooms themselves were clean but the set up of the hotel was scary. The first morning we were awoken to a woman above us shouting and screaming about some guy named Tom how he is a cheater and he always works late it went on for about an hour. We were going to call the cops but we decided to call the front desk first after we explain the woman at the desk says we know who it is don't worry she's mentally ill. What? The first 2 things that ran through my mind was I bet Tom doesn't exist and I bet she's not getting her incidentals back. We spent our 2nd night with a friend who lives in the area and she told us we shouldn't be staying there. Luckily my fiancées dad lives down here also which is where I'm currently writing this review. If you don't listen to anything else I say please listen to this do not eat the food at the store they have there I ordered a salad it came With a dead fly the end

Room Tip: Just say no

Sorry about the screaming of some people , usually this is not the norm and any disturbance that disturbs other guests are not tolerated , sorry for you're miss happ. Nothing was brought to my attention but I will investigate and take the necessary Percussion's that this doesn't happen again in the future.

Thanks you for bringing this to our attention again and your understanding that certain things are beyond our control until we are made aware of, we appreciate your input and strive to make everyone's stay safe and pleasant ,

Regarding the hotel: survivable quality, and loud (!!!!), really bad breakfast and regarding really solely the quality of the hotel, the worst hotel we had in our entire trip through Florida - price of all chosen hotels was fairly constant.

Besides this:
We booked and payed for 4 large rooms in advance. We got: 3 rooms - two of which were small. We were not refunded and mocked instead.
Evening: we waited for nearly two hours, to talk to the manager, which did not happen after all. So we were asked to come to the front desk again in the morning. One of our group asked in the morning about the status and whether we would be refunded. He got a free hot breakfast card and in the end three of us 12 got a scrambled egg. Before we left, we asked once again about the refunding, and we were told, we had gotten a hot breakfast and if that wasn't enough for us, we should pay 12 x $8 for the hot breakfast - so $96 for three scrambled eggs.

In the end, we were not refunded and the entire stay was as unpleasant as no stay in any other hotel ever before. And trust me: we have seen uncountable hotels around the world. We feel betrayed and the way we were treated was impertinent. They made a great business that day. The room we did not get even though we had already payed for it, was given to other guests, so they earned twice on that room. And then there was the downgrading for the other two rooms... No, honestly: it is better to choose a hotel, where you are treated as guest, not like this.
IF a refunding should happen after all, I'd correct this assessment. Unfortunately, I don't expect this to happen.

Room Tip: take a different hotel

There is a big misunderstanding here, Guest arrived after 12 midnight without any notice of late arrival! rooms can be re-sold if no notice of late arrival after 10pm and every hotel has this guide line. Anyway they had 4 rooms and one was released, so they had to share a room with their own friends. we still apologized and offered either a refund on that room or Free Breakfast buffet for all of the parties, which was around 16 people all together . that was a give away more then they paid for the room, sorry but sometimes you cant do enough for some.. , my apologies again I guess...

We spent 3 days here, visiting friends who were here for 7 days. The facility had a musty smell, as did our room. The service was adequate and the location worked, but the place needs a good renovation. Would I go back there? No,

If the room was closed or not aired- out, its normal in the tropics to have a musty smell, usually goes away soon as you turn on the a/c for a little while. Air very thick down here and very Humid.! I was with my family in the Famous 5 star Atlantis- Bahamas and the rooms had a must smell also. sorry you had a mediocre experience but our high floors don't have that issue. And for those readers, The complete bathroom remodeling project is almost finished, just 10 rooms left. So, almost all rooms have brand new bathrooms now ! Thanks for visiting us! we hope to make your next stay even better ! my promise :)

This hotel is in a good location on the beach. They have a nice pool and Tiki bar next to the pool. The beach has chairs and cabanas you can rent for the day. If you get up early you can find a lot of shells on the beach.

This place was great. Some hotels say they're close to the beach. This hotel is not on the beach but it's a 2 minute walk to the beach. Lots of restaurants in walking distance and right on the bus line. We're looking forward to our return trip. This is not a 5 star resort but very good for the price.
