4/5 Good

Traveled with family
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
All the staffs were wonderful and friendly. Very accommodating and fast with their services. The room can use a few updates and fixer upper. The pillows are so uncomfortable.

I liked the friendly staff I also loved the organic toiletries in the room. The view from my room windows was all beach and ocean

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
We were very disappointed that our room was definitely in need of update which just made the room feel dirty. This was our first vacation since Covid and this place was not worth the money we were charged. Money is so hard to come by and that just made me sick to spend the money on this room

Hotel was nice. Loved the easy access to the beach. Pool area was nice. Bring your own beach/pool towels - they didn’t have many and we often didn’t get any. Bed was horribly uncomfortable.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
When we arrived, the check in was simple and quick. We got the cards to our room and upon arrival, the smell of the ocean was quite evident in the room. It didn't take too long to get used to unless you have a very sensitive nose. But, the rooms were clean and supplied! However, the beach was right there as our lovely view from the balcony and only a short walk away! The rentals for chairs and umbrellas were very reasonable and the on-beach waitressing was my favorite highlight. It was just so convenient and I really do applaud the girls who serve out there. All in all, our stay was quite comfortable :)
