“Wonderful beach front, bathrm needs updating.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Liked our gulf front, jetted tub room! Disliked noisy air conditioner that made sleeping somewhat difficult. Beds were firm, pillows even more firmer. Liked the tile floors. Mini fridge was not cold enough. A little rust on the tubs drain. Better if the toilet is separate from the shower. Wifi strength just depends on type and carrier because my husband's iphone had no problem, but my htc one was having some problem. Liked that there were 2 chairs out on the balcony. Liked that maintenance replaced the missing tv remote for jetted tub rm efficiently. Disliked that Atm machine was not working.

Room Tip: Select gulf front view, 3rd or 4th floor room.

Hello Lily!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We are happy your enjoyed our scenic view, and your jetted hot tub. However, we’re disappointed we fell short of providing a fabulous experience. We apologize if the beds were too firm for your liking, the mini fridge, and the ATM machine for not working. We will tend to these inconveniences immediately to exceed every guest’s satisfaction. We hope you will choose us again and allow us to prove why we are a top rated hotel on Trip Advisor.

Best,
Aaron R.

The room at this hotel was ok, but the our 4th floor hallway smelled atrocious,(like pet urine or poo), we had a small balcony but it was right beside a bar that ran it's loud music late one night, only one night, thank goodness. The accommodations just didn't fit the price we paid. The beach was crowded with a capital C! There are not very many nice places to stay on the whole island that I could see, except the expensive Sapphire Towers.

Room Tip: Rooms on north side would be quieter.

Family get together for the long Labor Day weekend - had two rooms on the 3rd floor. PROS: Excellent breakfast is included - large selection - different kinds of eggs, waffles, muffins, re-fried beans, tortillas, variety of cereals and juices, etc. Rooms were clean, hotel staff was very pleasant. Beach Bar has "comfort food" burgers, wings, rings, etc. at a fair price for a beach bar - wings were very good and the service and bartender were excellent. Fireworks display was one of the best I've seen outside of the 4th of July. Short walk to a great beach - sandy with no rocks or shells to step on. Water was nice and warm at ~85 - seemed warmer than the small hotel pool.
CONS: If you bring your own chairs / umbrella you have to get to the beach early or the chair/umbrella vendor hogs the entire beach for a distance longer than a football field - very inconsiderate. TV in the room had issues - looked like someone pulled on the wires, and a lamp needed some repair - minor issues. Will definitely stay here again - fair prices - excellent service - excellent beach - clean.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the halls toward the beach are where the ice maker is - could be noisy at night.

Front desk clerk "JJ" made sure we had the best rooms for the 3 families. We got together to celebrate a birthday and this was the best stay ever, Fireworks display was awesome. Really loved the great access to the beach. Excellent breakfast. I love dogs but I would have preferred if the hotel did not accept dogs just like it is a smoke free hotel. Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on south side are quiteter

Hotel pool extremely small and bottom and sides of pool will tear your feet and swimsuit up so make sure you wear a swimsuit you don't mind snagging. Our oceanside room was clean, but the back stairway closest to our room smelt of dog urine and cleaning product to try and cover up the smell. Unfortunately some pet owners used the stairs instead of the designated area outside for their pets. Use the front stairway if you want to take the stairs.
