Pros: Everything!
Cons: Only issue which we didn't complain about, but heat doesn't work in the hotel room. Tiny bathroom, but very nice.
Great experience, great atmosphere. Came here for an anniversary surprise for the fiancee, and Im glad we picked this hotel. We will be back i'm sure in the future.

Nice hotel...but...

Would be great for a summer getaway but definitely not for the winter. The room had no heat and when I complained I was given the smallest of space heaters that did nothing to heat the room on a chilly night. I cancelled the rest of my stay and moved to another hotel so that I wouldn't freeze every night.

The front desk was very rude. The rooms are extremely small and uncomfortable to stay in. The beach and pool are walking distance which is very nice. Photos make this place much more admireable than it really is. Definitely would not recommend to others looking for a relaxing and comfortable visit.

The rooms were pretty but freezing! I'm pretty sure when they updated the rooms they just made it pretty. And left the thermostat on the wall for decoration. We could not turn the AC off. The restaurant was amazing. Food was fantastic!!! Tiki bar was fun with great staff as well. The pool was being filled when we got there, so we never got to go in. Overall, it was a good stay. But I wouldn't stay there if there is bad weather. Not too much to do away from the elements.

It was concerning for approximately 90% of the visit. The great part of our visit was check in. Thereafter things seem to turn down hill. The pool was not in operation little on the hot tub. There was the in ability to alter the heat because it did not seem to work at all with in the hotel. The tapwater was extremely cold which also wasn't she with the shower as it was never warm enough to try to warm up. Lastly, the worst experience was time in the restaurant with a server particularly named "destiny". She was rude, disrespectful and did not allow for a single mother to take care of her child without this being "an inconvenience" to her. This was attempted to be addressed by the restaurant manager which was not done so. Destiny was unprofessional and every sort of way which would make me not want to return to this place ever again solely from our experience in the restaurant let alone the small issues in the room. Good luck to anyone that would like to potentially try this in the future. This is the first time ever giving a less than optimistic review. It disappoints me to have to do so but I think people need to know.

Overall good, but with a few disappontments

We arrived later than expected because of a flight delay, but Erica checked us in and upgraded our room to ensure our stay would be the most pleasant--really enjoyed her and the level of customer service she offered. The room was nice and clean, but we could not adjust the thermostat, so I was freezing every night (it was December and the outside temperature was in the low 60s at night). We called the front desk and they offered some trick, but that didn't work. Another disappointment were the resort fees -- the pool was closed, but the full resort fee was charged daily. And the last disappointment came when we arrived back to our room after being out and the door was unlocked. The cleaning service did not shut the door nor did they really clean our room. Overall, we enjoyed being right on the beach, so that made up for most of the disappointments.

Pros: Location
Cons: Needs to be renovated
Location on the ocean is great-none of the rooms are on the ocean. Pool was closes for renovation-should have been told up front. Rooms are very old with new paint-not exactly renovated. You can hear every footstep outside.

We enjoyed ourselves very much. Our entire stay was well worth the trip. The food was wonderful and the staff were very helpful. The Tiki Hut by the beach was awesome a perfect place to watch the Florida/Alabama game and the sun sets were amazing. We will be back.
