The property is in a fantastic location, it has suffered some hurricane damage and they are making repairs. We read some of the reviews about this property and we figured it must be people looking to get free stuff. The beach was beautiful, the new pool was amazing. We had fun in the game room, the gym is small but it is a vacation gym. The continental breakfast is what a free breakfast is, light on choices. We were never hustled for anything. We enjoyed our stay and cant wait to see it when the renovations are complete.

The hotel property was nasty dirty. Is not like they show on the pictures on the website. I was so mad. It was like a Motel and the hotel was on the side all the way in the back next to a beautiful hotel that is next to it that you think is the same hotel and is not. Please think about staying in this terrible hotel. My room was duty the rug had stains all over the furniture where all everything was duty I have no worlds to describe this negative experience. I have even pictures of the room. When I went to complained no one talk to me about it no only that they didn’t care for me to stay in that room I left so fast they lost not us. We went to a beautiful hotel that is included even breakfast I recommend you the Embassy suite hotel and casino they were so nice and the hotel you have to see it beautiful and cheaper with a beautiful pool and free breakfast. A hotel you want to come back believe what I say please don’t go to that bad smell hotel,

We enjoyed that there was a small kitchen in our room. The rooms shown on the website are much more modern than the rooms we were provided. The picture of the beach is a view of the beach of the hotel next door. While towels were provided for the pool, they often were not at the beach when you went so you would have to go to the pool. The pool light was hanging out of the socket, Im assuming which would be an electrical Hazzard. The bed was old and uncomfortable, the sheets were scratchy and barely fit the bed. As the stay went on we got less things, they stopped providing toiletries and decreased our towels. At the end of the stay we were not given any hand towels. I spilled salt on the floor which was never vacuumed when the room was cleaned. The beach was very rough ride and in the morning and early afternoon would be covered in seaweed, we would walk down to another hotel beach where their staff cleaned it up. You had to pay to rent chairs, umbrellas, and tables on the beach. It seemed like they were trying to nickel and dime you for everything. The breakfast that was included was very lack luster. As the week went on they had less options, for example at the start of the trip they had four different kinds of cereal at the end there was only one. It seemed like the food was left overs from the day before and not fresh. At one point French fries were served at breakfast, Im assuming left over from lunch the day before.

Worst hotel ever. The bartender and the cook in the pool wouldnt even look at you while you are ordering. The bartender would be absent for long periods of time and the cook (while in his phone and not even taking a second to look up) would ask to wait for him to order our food/drinks. Food was bad in the pool area. Super expensive and flavorless or overcooked. The pool is in the first floor and the beach in the lobby. Wouldnt be a problem except for the fact that they DO NOT allow u to walk/get in the elevator/walk through the lobby wearing only a bathingsuit or wet. If you want a chair or an umbrella, you have to pay. Breakfast was good (if you go early, if not, u will get leftovers) but the staff is busier talking among themselves and ignoring you than actually doing their job. On my second day, the fire alarm in the bedroom went off because of battery life. 4am. I had to get my phone (they have something similar to a cellphone in the room but it does not work) and call the front desk. After 30 minutes, I had to call again. The girl said they couldnt find the handyman and would send security to remove the battery and leave it like that (without a battery). I said no. 45 minutes later the security showed up and changed the alarm. The pictures shown here are Not at all similar to the hotel. The rooms smell, thin walls (I could hear everything the people next to me said) and, worse of all, Ithis was all in the new building. Old building has marks for repairs not made.

Check in was extremely slow with typically only one person ar the desk at a time and the parking gargage attached to the hotel is a pain so we ended up just parking in the hotel driveway almost the whole time we were there. I had upgraded my room to a deluxe ocean view on-line. They said they had no record of it. Thank goodness i had a computer printout with the reservation of my new room. The hotel is under construction so the hallways and carpets are a mess and sometines only one elevator was working. Our room was nice ( full refrigerator, stove, microwave, utensils, pots and pans, etc) really no complaints there. They do offer a wonderful complimentary breakfast daily till 11 am. Everything from eggs to sausage to muffins, cereal, bagels, fresh fruit etc. Staff at pool and beach were extremely helpful and nice. The beach was beautiful with staff that would set up your chair and umbrella for you. At the pool they offer bingo and water aerobics daily which was very fun. Overall great family hotel with a very friendly staff. If you can overlook the very dirty carpets, scuffed up walls and signs saying the hotel is under construction it was very nice. Make sure you ask for a deluxe room. They are the only rooms that have been upgraded.
