The front desk charged my debit card twice and put the entire hotel cost on my card 2times and held up my money I had for vacation.

Awesome stay! Beautiful ocean view!

Great place. I wish the activities were available (surfing, kayaks, etc.). The pools were nice and food good.

Property is new, and the full gulf view rooms are very quiet and large. The pool fountain was not functioning, and the beach chairs require rental. There is also no included breakfast (others offer free room service due to covid). Other than that it was great!

Very clean room and great off season pricing. We will definitely stay again.

We had problems with the AC in the room. They didn’t fix it. We had problems when we ate breakfast. The waitress never turned in our order, after 40 minutes we asked someone. They never received an order! No apologies at all. We just got up and left.

I loved the location. Having beach views from bed made the trip very relaxing, especially on days that the weather didn’t allow for beach time. The hotel was under-staffed for the amount of guests. I had to wait 2 hours to get into my room after checking in due to the staff being behind cleaning the rooms. When I requested to get those two hours back by having late checkout, I was denied. Other than that, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

I visited the property during the Coronavirus quarantines and stay at home orders. The facility was staffed up to meet my needs but it was obvious there was a reduction of staff in housekeeping and the dining facilities. Housekeeping services were vetted by the front desk as to the items and services you were requesting. After told what I needed a staff member was knocking on my door within 15 minutes. Food service was suffering from a shortage of food on hand due to diminished deliveries. The cook and the manager on duty were fantastic at making the best of a tough situation. BTW, the Ahi Tuna was incredible! This is a beautiful property and I hope to visit it again, highly recommended. J. Gabbert

Nice outdoor pool, friendly staff and good breakfast cooked to order

Very nice clean rooms. Clean lobby. Helpful staff.

Went through Obitz and had where we were supposed to have breakfast included in our stay but called front desk to check and they said no we did not so called Orbitz and they said no but I have a snap shot where I did get it included in price . Be nice if they had some lights out by pool and between the hotel where the long yellow chairs were with fire pits . Staff was friendly. Also be nice if had washers and driers in ice area on each floor. Need more disability parking . Food from restaurant was wonderful . Had a lot of activities out side for kids. Pool was nice. DJ was great.

We wish that we could have stayed longer and we didn’t have to be in Orlando the next day.

The property was very clean. The staff was friendly. The pool area is amazing, and the beach access was close and easy!

Staff was polite and friendly. The AC had a musky smell every time it kicked on.

It was really nice overall. The lazy river was really nice and the beach is just a few feet away.

Clean and great and friendly service. Great access to the beach. Nice pool. Will stay again. Will recommend to friends and family.

Clean and modern accommodations. Helpful, friendly staff.

Great hotel, clean and friendly! Needs coffee selection at hotel restaurant.
