Beautiful setting, hotel needs updating
Posted Feb 28, 2017
We just got back from this hotel and had a very nice time but probably wouldn't stay there again unless they do a massive renovation. The area itself is beautiful, beach/water spectacular. However, for being a Hilton, we were a bit disappointed in the upkeep, or lack thereof. The rooms were in desperate need of an overhaul. The AC systems needs a massive overhaul. Our AC stayed on continuously instead of kicking on and off like it should have in "auto" mode. And on top of that it was EXTREMELY loud.
The pool was another huge disappointment. It is not ANYwhere near the water. It is on the backside of the hotel with the parking lot in between the hotel and pool. The service at the pool was lacking at best. Go to the beach...
What you see on the website for beach is what you get. There isn't much and its very crowded with chairs. Its in the shade for a good part of the day as well and fills up by noonish when the sun is finally on it. Best bet, skip the main beach and go to the littler beach, Hammock beach. Lots of sun by 9:30 and not a lot of chairs so it doesn't get too crowded. Overall nice place, but needs a lot of TLC and you can probably have better amenities at another hotel for the same price.
