We were appalled at the dirtiness of this hotel, see photos. So glad we had taken a quilt & pillows in with us! It was late when we went to bed and I pulled back the covers to find little stain spots on the sheets and sheet creases on one side of the bed that appeared to look like someone...

We stayed two nights at this hotel. The location is excellent, the pool very nice (our daughter enjoyed it a lot), the breakfast is nice, the food at the pool side restaurant is excellent and tasty. Overall we liked our stay here. They could consider offering beach service which is currently not available.

We stayed here on the recommendation of some friends. What a great place. The staff is super friendly. Nice pool and courtyard out to the ocean. Cabana and beach chairs. Short walk to the south beach strip along the beachfront. We got a partial Oceanview, totally worth it.

We stayed here for an impromptu weekend get away. The hotel is at a great location and has a super friendly staff. The room is bare bones but clean. Tiny Florida bathroom like most other hotels.

The best point is the location both to go around the town as to go to the beach. All the rest is rather bad: the rooms were not well cleaned (the windows were not cleaned for months, I guess!), not one single request was done (unless or go directly to the staff in the corridors and get what you want...

Room a bit small. We were three, just about enough air. The only service minded staff was in the reception, the lady there was great. Pool area nice, but why not have some lamps there when it gets dark? Would be a lot more cozy and elegant. As the hotel next door, that also had games in the garden like...
