Loved the indoor hotel ambience but staff made the stay very unpleasant. During check-out we spoke to staff David, and we had asked him some questions and responded to us in a very rude manner and was very unhelpful and honestly last time we are staying at this property because of the staff. In regards to cleanliness the rooms were cleaned often but we saw rat while sitting in the room’s patio

Loved the food. Whatni didnt like was that my room smelled like a nursing home. I complained and requested another room. Their solution was to spray it. The other disappointment was that their coffee shop closed too early.

Facility has no character and is rather dated — the gilding is off the wilting Lilly.

Overall this place was excellent. Great location. Had the large ocean view front balcony suite in the 300 section. Staff was very courteous and accommodating. However for the amount paid for the suite, cleanliness gets an easy 2 thumbs down. Pros guests leftover food still in the fridge. This leads me to believe that they do subpar cleaning and probably not very thorough in their cleaning. Then, to make matters worse, housekeeping knocks on the door at 9:12am wanting is too check out already. She says checkout at 11 am, but our paperwork and front desk says 12pm. Needless to say, they bothered us when they did not need to. Why try to clean a room if they are going to do a half naked job in the first place? Would I stay again? Maybe. Great location, but for the price paid (over $900/night) I expected much better.

We had a great room by the pool and the property was actually nicer than I had remember. We moved here after a subpar experience at another beach front hotel and this was a nice upgrade that pleased my wife better than the other place. The in house restaurants are fine for breakfast and lunch and very convenient to have. The grounds are well maintained and the staff were very helpful. The room was very comfortable, especially the air conditioning which was quiet and efficient. Nice place!
