Loved the hotel on previous stay but the last time I stayed it was my four kids and I and we decided to spend our last night before driving 18 hours the next morning here. We booked a pool view room but when we checked in we were informed there was only one room open (and I found out why...

Dear guest, We apologized that you were inconvenienced; it is rare that we have to change a guests room type, but is something that every hotel can run into due to maintenance, stay overs, and arrival departure patterns. We do our best to upgrade any guest that becomes displaced from their original booking. It is unacceptable that it took 5...

We stayed at this hotel this month(April, 2015). Great views from every room of the water! The room was clean, big, and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. We ate outside- food and drinks were very good. My only complaint was the loud music that did not end until 1:00 P.M. It was a Tuesday night. The music could...

Dear guest, It is great to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful resort and we look forward to a future visit. We urge you to book an island view room when you return if you do not wish to experience music from the room. Best regards, Management

As you can see on their site, it's not on the beach, it's on an inlet. What you can't see is the noise level. Once we booked a room, the confirmation email sent to us only then told us that we would be able to hear the noise from the club downstairs that opens at 9pm, and also noise from...

Dear guest, It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your stay with us; we believe that we have a truly amazing property with much to offer, but do realize that it is not for everyone. If you decide to give us another opportunity- we would recommend that you book the island view room if you do not want to...

They never gave us any notice that this place is pretty much for adults! The music was so loud outside you coldnt even carry a conversation without yelling. We were located on the 5th floor and once...

Dear Brandy, We host guests of all ages and do not discriminate. We are an entertainment resort and market ourselves very transparently as such; therefore expect that is why most of our guests even book here. We have a very attentive security staff and a state of the art camera and alarm system; safety is important to us- incidentally that...

I am hesitant to post this because I have never posted a negative review before. We went for Spring break. We had three rooms, 3 adults and 5 18 - 20 year olds with us and knew they advertised themselves to be the party meca so that was not a problem. I did specifically request a room away from that...

Shephard's has a great atmosphere, friendly staff, clean rooms and delicious food and drinks. The pool bar and tiki bar add the perfect, laid back beach element. The hotel is just steps away from the beach, overall a great experience!

My husband and I stayed at this resort the week of March 30 and had a great time. The place is very clean and the service is excellent! We could see the dolphins from our balcony. We really enjoyed our stay!
