Location and staff were amazing . Messaged Adrienne Miley (Chief Concierge) ahead of time as I was proposing to my girlfriend that evening and she had champagne waiting for us in the room and set up reservations at a nearby restaurant. Very memorable stay !

The staff is AWFUL! They did nothing but harass us while at the pool. They wouldn’t even let us have our water bottles on our table. Very miserable people. The restaurant’s food was not good. They didn’t bring one of our meals out and charged us for it anyway, when we told the server, he said there was nothing he could do because his manager wasn’t there and to call them later to fix it. 4 calls and 3 emails to this hotel later, never did anything about it or gave us our money back for the meal we didn’t eat.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice bathroom accessories and the water was appreciated. Sadly the hotel was under construction. The pool deck was being sanded so there was dust everywhere and very loud starting at 7am. The lobby was being painted and covered in plastic. Seating area was unusable. Should not have been open during remodel and made my short 2 night stay very unpleasant.

Older rooms and hotel. Photos on Expedia are hyped up and do not match what the actual facility is. Loud at night and can hear noises from road of cars and party goers. Location is good and has water views

The location is perfect. Quick walk to 3rd street and the beach. I recommend going when they have a pool party because that was a vibe.

The room was clean and bathroom big. The rooftop bar is cool but drinks were watery and way too overpriced. There is no refrigerator in the rooms.
