Stayed here waiting for a cruise ship. The whole neighborhood is sort of really creepy tourist trap. The hotel is awful, Concrete slamming steel doors, noisy, run down. The beach is nice and is literally right behind the hotel and they provide chairs and umbrellas for you, for free.

We stayed 6 nights in a beachfront one bedroom suite. This is a pretty big room with kitchen, dining area and couch area. Kitchen has a stove, microwave and full fridge. Separate bedroom but had a pull out couch in living room. Area was centrally located on the beach. We watched an amazing New Year's fireworks display from our room,...

Candidly for the amount of money paid this hotel is not a good value. If you want to be close to a cruise ship before embarkation you might consider other properties. The bed was very hard, there was no hot water and to say the accommodation was stark would be an understatement. The area at night when we arrived was...

We enjoyed our stay, this was our third time at this hotel. We intend to continue staying here on our other vacations. The location is ideal for shopping and relaxing on the beach. Getting things to eat is not a problem as there are places very close by when the need arises.

The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of the beach avenue where lots of shops and restaurants around. I met the hotel’s manager at the reception, who told me he was an immigrant from India long ago, was very receptive. Upon check in, he asked me if I would like to pay more for a room upgrade to have...

Location is top notch - situated on a perfect beach and on a strip of excellent shopping. Pretty much a dream come true. No restaurant onsite though but restaurants are nearby. Somewhat dated building but very clean, spacious and the location makes up for everything else.

This is definitely a budget hotel but the room was like a small apartment. Nice living area with kitchen. Spacious bedroom with two beds. Clean and convenient to everything. Right on the beach and Boardwalk. The staff was very attentive and helpful. If you want luxury go somewhere else but if you want clean and value for money this is...

After reviewing the room photos on the hotel website we concluded that the Horizon was the place for us. Upon checking in we quickly realized that the photos were not accurate and strategically obscured the rough edges of the hotel. As we unpacked we noticed some troubling issues with the bathroom plumbing in our room. The manager was eager to...

I only stayed one night before leaving to go sailing. This property is close to the marina and has everything you will need. Lots of things are closed when no cruise ship is scheduled to be in port. And with the cruise port close by be prepared for lots of people and traffic if in port. The property is well...
