Loved our Stay but photos online can be deceiving
Posted Apr 30, 2016
While I will whole-heartedly rate this 5 stars all the way, I must admit to initially being a bit disappointed by the room vs. the photos you see online for this place. I do plenty of research before booking and from what I could tell, this hotel was by far the most amazing deal. I booked it, continued to look at photos asking myself if this was for real? Truth is, no... It isn't for real because most of the photos I found were of the larger units with amazing full kitchens and jacuzzi tubs. Ours was amazing, had all the kitchen amenities and a full bath but was not like the photos. However, when I compare what I paid, there is no way I can complain. The room was very nice and large compared to most (just not as large and lavish as some of the photos show). The pool, hot tub and being right on the beach was priceless. The staff - amazing. Very clean and my kids loved the volley ball and basketball courts. We checked out whatever movies we wanted for evenings in and was by far an amazing price for what we paid. Just be aware that most of the photos that are posted online are probably from the timeshare owners who probably get the bigger, nicer units if there is availability. The one we got was nice but on the smaller size. The balcony did have an ocean view (LOVED IT!) it was tiny! I mean - Tiny. Not at all like the photos. Barely open the door & hardly fit two chairs. Also, you MUST rent a car. We paid $60/rt (with tip) to go to Pier 21 and back for a $10 Dolphin Tour.
