    Very friendly staff

    The staff is so nice and accommodating. Every one goes out of their way to help and make sure you’re happy. The rooms need lots of updating but management assured me that is coming soon. Fun place! Nice restaurant and bars in the hotel and also surrounding area. Just a short walk to the beach.

    This place is ok

    We stayed here for 4 nights. It’s clean, but needs updating. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The location is across the beach. The pool was nice and clean. I don’t suggest eating breakfast at the restaurant on the main floor. The price was $13.95 for a continental breakfast.

    Ok if you are attending a wedding there

    Thankfully I did not experience anything negative with my room like many people have. Room was clean, no mold or anything (first thing I looked at) but the bed was horrible. Hardly slept during my 2 night stay. I was there for a wedding and had a good time at that but the hotel didn’t have much going on. Pool was underwhelming but beach was a short walk. Nothing bad but I wouldn’t choose it again if not for an event happening there

    Great Place to Stay

    We booked a suite facing the water and were lucky to also get a connecting room. It was perfect for our group. The rooms were clean and the full kitchen was great for the birthday celebration. The grandchildren loved the mini golf and water park. Shout outs to Julia, Brandon, Clayton and James for their excellent service!!! We have recommended the hotel to friends and will definitely be back!

    Awful communication

    The Air Conditioning in our room barely worked. We had the maintenance guy check it and couldn't do anything about it. We ended up buying a fan and putting it in the room to help. Worse than that, my son left some clothing items in the room which I have been trying to get in touch with the hotel over. Since then, I have left three voicemails with their housekeeping manager (who according to the front desk is the only person who can help me) and sent two emails with zero response.
