We had a lovely time at this hotel. We booked it because of the reviews here, and because we needed a place where our special needs child would not be exposed to things I cannot explain to him. The room (we had a 1 bedroom suite) was very comfy and very clean, and I am a fanatic about clean. It had a large frig, a nearly full-size stove, and wonder of wonders, a dishwasher which I did not expect. The staff was attentive, the pool is larger than many beach front chains have for 10X the number of guests. Two incidents define the personal attention this hotel offers. The owner has a lovely well-mannered dog that he sometimes brings when he is working. My son is afraid of dogs. When the owner overheard me trying to reassure my son that the dog was not dangerous, he told me not to feel threatened by it. I explained that my son's fear was not rational and the owner immediately confined the dog. Also, we left a large expensive hard drive at the hotel. We thought nothing of it, assuming we had left it at home. When we arrived home and could not find it we assumed we had misplaced it elsewhere in our travels. Imagine the surprise when the hotel called us and told us they had found it three days after our return. They would not even accept any money to cover the cost of shipping it! You will never get that kind of service from any chain on the beach, and as a VA native I've tried them all. I will be back in the comfortable bed in room 106 next summer, and hope my praise of the Alamar will not result in such an influx of tourists that I have trouble booking my week.
In general, the location is good, quick walk to the beach, and near the pier and amusement area. There is jet noise during the day, but that is common all over VA beach due to Oceana. Hey guys, it's the sound of freedom!
