          Room is very clean and comfortable, owner is very accommodating and courteous. We stayed Labor Day weekend but has cut our vacation short due to storm. Management gave us a refund. Now, that's excellent customer service. Highly recommend this hotel. Thank you.

          No, I'm sorry, we do not have rooms with bunkbeds. The majority of our rooms have two double beds and a pull-out.

          My family is planning a vacation next year and we are considering the Armada. We are a large family of about 16 people with kids ranging from 1 to 18 years old. We are looking for a fun hotel, and one that won't have staff/owners yelling at children (which happened in the past). My family likes to hang out and play board games, and we occasionally do it on the balcony. Our last hotel made us go inside at 10pm, even though we weren't making too much noise. Would this be a problem at this hotel? Are there strict rules at this hotel? Is there any activities such as ping pong, pool, arcade, etc...
