The view was amazing.The only concern we had was mostly the food. We ended eating only salads .(We ad to go...

We arrived at 3 PM, were told we could not check in until 4. At 4 PM we were told the rooms were not ready and that they would call us. We had no where to go and were tired. We finally got our room at 5:45 PM. For $275 a night my room should have been ready by 4...

WHERE DO I START...I drove up and my mouth dropped. The Valet person was so dang nice and helpful. Made us feel like Royalty. We checked in and they guided us to our room where we changed and hit the sushi place across the street. The bar downstairs was also a great experience. Met a couple from NY and laughed...

We splurged for a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite that had a full kitchen, LR/DR and washer and dryer. We were so excited and expected it to be beautiful and clean. It was NOT clean! The master bedroom had splashes of drink or food on the walls by the bed, the lampshade on the other side of the bed was stained...

Another hotel messed up my reservation and I ended up at the Marina Inn for the Easter weekend. I had been traveling all day and just tired. From the moment I checked in Andrew was very pleasant and friendly. In the middle of trying to figure out all the craziness, he assured me that he would take care of it...

The facility is beautiful, however, the scenery did little to distract from the unfriendly attitude of the registration clerk. We checked on our room availability prior to the four o'clock check in time and were told the room was not available, and they would call when it was. At 6:30 p.m. I still had not heard from them. I called...

Nice hotel with marina, tennis club and golf club nearby. However, not clear from the website that the hotel will not arrange for your tennis/golf and that the clubs are not part of the hotel. Also unclear if there are special arrangements with the respective clubs. The hotel itself is clean, the rooms are spacious and with large bathrooms. The...

Beautiful place to go with family. Lots to do. Great location and helpful staff. The shuttle takes you directly to a private beach with umbrellas and chairs. Great for children who want to collect sea shells.

We were in the area for the first time and looking to relax. The facility offered us everything we wanted in April. The pool area is small but inviting and the Waterscape restaurant provided prompt but unhurried service and very good quality food. We spent time walking the grounds and the Marina. There is good access to all the "touristy...

We found this hotel beautiful and loved the location. Gorgeous grounds and lobby. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Only issue is we left room one day at 10 AM, came back at 9 PM to discover our room was never cleaned. That was pretty disappointing given the upscale reputation of the hotel. They never compensated us with a complimentary...
