Suzette at the front desk was wonderful Abd kind. The towel lady was not so much :/

pros: very close to beach, well run operations cons: don't like valet parking, small pool

Beautiful property. Beautiful ocean view from the room.

We loved that the resort was right across the street from the beach!! Also the pool area was very nice and relaxing.

We thought the ocean view from every room was neat! They need a common area or bar on a higher level with an ocean view to enjoy on colder days and at night.

The staff was incredible, and made up for the facility's shortcomings. Everyone was incredible friendly, professional, and made us feel extremely welcome. The beds were comfortable, but the facility is starting to show it's age. The shower our room had orange stains on the tile, and stains or mold on the grout. The pool is small, and the limited number of chairs was causing some arguments amongst the guests. The onsite dinning was good, and the staff was especially helpful with our kids. The hotel was very quiet even during Spring Break, so hard to say anything bad about our overall experience other than some updating needs to be done, soon.

Excellent Location and Easy access to the Beaches.

The hotels added too many extra fees during check out which i did not expect

Staff was extremely friendly and being so close to the beach was great

The room was nice and it was clean. The view of the ocean was lovely and the beds were comfortable. The beach was fantastic and having chairs that were put out on the beach, as part of the resort fees, was a nice convenience. The bar staff, pool staff and beach staff were great! The walk to Publix, Starbucks and other shops was very easy and convenient, there are a lot of food options nearby. I know it’s probably due in part to COVID, but most of the staff was not very engaging. You had to schedule housekeeping and be out of your room while it was being cleaned. I chose not to do this, but when I asked to exchange for clean towels, or a new garbage bag, or a bottle of water, they seemed very put out. I was told to do this in lieu of having my room cleaned, and I only did it when they were already on my floor, I never made anyone make a special trip to my room. I was yelled at for not having shoes on in the lobby, but I had left my shoes on the pool deck when I stepped outside the gate to peek and see if there was an open outside table to eat nextdoor. I couldn’t get back in from outside because the card reader to get back into the pool deck NEVER worked, not one time the whole week, for me or any of the other guests. This forced me to walk around the building and cut through the lobby to the pool deck. I’m also still trying to get a receipt from checkout to make sure I wasn’t charged for anything extra. They have a no touch check in and out policy.

Great location across the street from the beach and very friendly staff.

I liked that the property was close to all restaurants and shops, and that it was right on the beach. What I didn’t like what the daily resort fee which really didn’t cover much except for using beach towels really. The hotel didn’t offer anything with all the money we paid, not even a breakfast. Only gave us toothpaste envelopes once in 4 days, and when we asked for more, the guy at the reception told us to buy it from the store. Nothing was inclusive with this package. But I guess when the pandemic ends by next year it’ll be about going back to the Caribbean; at least they have inclusive packages and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on Florida beaches. Honestly I’d give this hotel 3 stars tops just for location and style. My advice, wait until it’s safe to go back to the Caribbean like punta cana, it’s much better there.

Great hotel. Super friendly and helpful staff. Decent location.
