Weekend Anniversary Getaway

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Rooms were freshly renovated
Cons: Food at restaurant could have been a bit better
Location: Nice beach, and Dali museum is near by
I requested through Expedia that we have a room on this 1st floor near main pool area. When we arrived our room was on the second floor near the 2nd pool. After explaining our situation Amanda at front desk was very helpful in making our request happen. We had dinner at the restaurant in hotel. The food was ok, but I do not recommend the grouper. The next day we hung our by the pool, which was enjoyable. Once bar opened my husband I both got their signature margarita, it was excellent. Hotel's parking was a bit tight, but didn't move till we left. There were nice surrounding bars in the area as well.

Rooms are disgusting!!!

Posted Apr 10, 2014
First off I was told I would have a "poolside suite". The only pool they show you on the website is the one main pool (which was pretty nice) They do not show you the tiny little dirty one. Guess which pool I was next to....?? Room was disgusting!! Mold all over the bathroom, carpet and tile were filthy. Very small rooms. The only nice things I can say about it was there was a nice bartender at their little tiki hut bar and it is steps away from the beach. Can't complain about the location. I would never go back or recommend anyone.

It is an OK hotel close to the beach.

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: The location is good. The beach towels are good.
Cons: Everything needs to be updated. Set aside some pool time for adults. Get cable TV so you can see a film without 25 commercials every 10 minutes.
Location: The location is great -- close to everything
The room and bathroom are very dated. You could not open a window. The pool was filled with kids so no ability for an adult to swim some laps.

Not what I expected....Pictures are misleading.

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: staff
Cons: lower price ..... or upgrade the hotel.
Location: decent location
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. So were the other guests. Place is very season ( old)....Overpriced for the accommodations based on what our friends paid to be on the beach in a much newer hotel.

Economical

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: The cost was reasonable
Cons: Parking was tight. We chose not to move our vehicle once we found a spot for fear that we wouldn't find another spot esp. because of our large SUV
The hotel was not very appealing curbside but the rooms were clean and the location was excellent. The amenities were nice as well. Would definitely stay here again.
