Kudos to Benny, Crystal Stephanie and Spike. They are the most courteous, professional, prompt and friendly restaurant staff I’ve dealt with at a hotel. I eat breakfast there often and it’s nice to start the day off with such happy people.

I was here for work but it did not feel like it the entire time I was at the hotel. I had a balcony facing the beach and the views were magnificent. It was calming and relaxing knowing that back home was getting hit with snow while I was able to read a book in the sun. All of

We stayed one night on the way to Orlando. Loved the ocean front balcony we had. Our room had refrigerator and microwave. Had a nice night of sleeps. We dined here for supper. It was very good. The front desk was very nice and helpful. Would stay here again.

I spent four days, including Christmas day, at this hotel. Holidays can be difficult for people with families who have to work, but my stay at this resort was all the more pleasant because of the attitudes of the staff. They were all gracious, helpful, and joyous as befitting

Hi connieb617. Yes for those that haven't booked a room at our hotel, there is a $50 per person cost per day to use the pool and lazy river. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. We do look forward to welcoming you to our hotel soon! -Heather

Can non-guests use the lazy river and pool? Is there a fee to the public for use?
Hi Connieb617. There is access for locals to use our pool Monday-Thursday, because we also want to be fair and considerate to our guests. If you won’t be staying with us, we just ask that you spend a minimum of $50 per person in food and beverage to utilize our facilities. The $50 is prepaid and we’ll hook you up with a wristband, which gives you access to the pool. As you order items throughout the day, we’ll just deduct it from your tab. We hope to see you splashing around with us and enjoying our brand new tiki bar sometime soon! -Heather

"Ask for a room with a balcony, it is WORTH IT!"
"Choose a beachfront room on an upper floor for the sunset view."
"Grab a corner unit if available otherwise go for the top floors for the views. And always spring for the gulf FRONT view."
"Splurge for the Gulf View towards the center. Otherwise you are looking at the parking lot or listening to the commercial ACs all night."
"Ocean View"
