I stayed at the hotel for a weekend. I like the location. You can see the ocean from the room, which is really nice. The staff is extremely friendly but not too chatty. Probably the second best thing about this hotel after the location. The gym is nicer than most hotel gyms. It's close to a lot of restaurants. You...

I don't know where to begin with this property. We were upgraded to the Santa Cruz Suite, which was large enough to live in. The property is located directly across the street from the beach. We had breakfast at Marbella and it was very good. Enough cannot be said about the staff. From the beginning of the trip through the...

Loud and you can hear slamming of the doors and walking upstairs. Didn't sleep a wink. Nicely complained that night twice, in morning and afternoon. Management blamed me for requesting a room with easy access to outside. I'm a Platinum member and declined the nicer beach view since I had a puppy with me and wanted him to go outside...

This hotel and its staff went out of its way to make my anniversary special. They upgraded us to a magnificent suite and sent chocolate covered strawberries and wine. The suite was spectacular with views of the ocean from every room of the 850 square foot suite.
