We had a nice visit to the Worthington, it is essentially a decent example of modern gay accommodation. It has most of what you need to have a good holiday. Average age of guests is approx 50 if you want younger you may want to look elsewhere.
Room clean tidy and cleaning staff were more than helpful (Edgar in particular).
Always busy enough if you are wanting to make friends.
Good location and close to the beach.
Rates reflect value for money and you do not feel like you are overpaying for the privilege of having a gay vacation.
No clock in room, it's nice to see the time especially if you wake in the night.
Music selection is so varied that it is not enjoyable, heavy instrumental circuit mixes at 10am or downer songs like 'rain (who wants to hear about that when laying in the sunshine), Long & winding road & the Madonna song 'in this life' about the loss of life through AIDS. I was also ready to kill when all 9 mixes of Adele's Rolling in the deep were played consecutively. As the average age is 50 a few guests commented to me how they also were not enjoying the music or how loud it was. The owner Jay is very proud of his song choices and told me i wont hear these elsewhere, unless anyone uses itunes. I would recommend you pack an iPod and you can then choose for yourself.
The owner Jim isn't charismatic he doesn't make any effort to speak to you (like saying good morning when you are at breakfast alone in the office) and will not engage you in conversation. This is a shame as he seems a nice guy.
Saturday happy hour appears to be a chore to the owners, they didn't appear interested and it is a good opportunity to engage their guests in conversation.
No daily happy hour, I would be willing to pay more for the nightly rate and have this daily. It's a good time for people to mix and would help those alone or who are shy.
Sleazy after dark, if you came for sex you will certainly find it night.
