2nd time back
Posted Apr 3, 2017
My family and I came back to the Alden after enjoying it so much last year. We even requested (and got) our same room. It's a great little beachy hotel and my kids 12,10, and 5 loved it. I'd start my day at 8a in the hot tub and usually by myself, which was nice. The pool is open from 730ish to 11p so lots of time to swim in the bath-like water. I walked next door to the Tradewinds to see what it was all about and the pool area was SOOO busy and had the music pumping. Alden's pools had some people here and there but not to the point of feeling crowded (we were there at the height of spring break). The beach bar is small and seems to open later and close early but not a deal breaker for us. This is a quieter place for families but the party is only a few hotels away when you want it. Room was updated and clean but not free of flaws...but nothing to complain about. We'll most likely be back next year...in our same room!
