Kitchen was a plus!
Posted Sep 12, 2016
The pros: We got a free upgrade to the 2 bathroom suite so that was a nice surprise. The kitchen was a plus and they supply pretty much everything you would need including dish soap and sponge. No oven but the stove and microwave was enough. They had a washer but no dryer. The pool area was very nice and the kiddie pool surrounded by chairs was nice so I was able to keep an eye out on my daughter without having to sit so far away. Of course the beach was beautiful. It was their slow season so it wasn't so hard to get beach/pool chairs. The cons: It's at the beginning of the high rise hotel strip so if you're not keen on walking to the restaurants this hotel is not for you. Although it's not a far walk (and you can either walk in the street or the pathway by the beach) it's just not fun when you have a kid to tote around to and from the hotel. There is only 2 restaurants. Also, they said there's 24hr room service but they don't even give you a menu in the guest book in the rooms. A 15% service charge is automatically added to your bill and they charged $25/week for a crib when I think it should be complimentary. I know it's a little petty but there's no "Do Not Disturb" signs which we use sometimes because we don't need the room cleaned. Of course they came in when we were napping on the couch and woke up our daughter from hers. And don't look for someone to serve you drinks/food by the pool or beach. It seemed like they didn't have enough staff.
