Nice hotel close - but not actually - on the beach
Posted Nov 19, 2016
We got to the hotel a few hours ahead of check in time and were advised that no rooms were ready yet but that they would call us when one does become available. The concierge took our bags though and we went exploring for a few hours until the call came - still two hours before the actual check in time. We had ordered an ocean view king room with wrap balcony and were advised that although we still were paying for the ocean view rate that we would be given a corner room facing the pool and intercoastal instead. Note: NO rooms in hotel are directly on the ocean as advertised - there is another hotel (The Hyde) which is situated between this hotel and the actual ocean. However, despite that, facing the intercoastal and the pool was still a nice view, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. There is no tub so cannot soak, but the walk-in shower had good water pressure and stayed hot. The balcony was not a wraparound per say but two separate balconies off the room - still nice though. And the pool is just gorgeous. We added the breakfast to our bill and was pleasantly surprised at the selection - it was indeed a hot full breakfast and not the standard cereal-in-a-bowl to-go deal. I would stay in this hotel again but would pay only for the intercoastal view, corner room - breakfast included - rate. The beach/pool towels are a nice touch, and the Chocolate cake in the bistro is to die for :)
