I booked my room several months out and took advantage of their pre-paid rate of $190 per night. However, when I got there, Michelle at the front desk, upgraded us to a preferred room due to the fact that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary on this trip. Even though the hotel was over sold, Michelle went out of her way to check us in early and upgrade us to a room with a fantastic view! The staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating.
I have to say that the food was way overpriced, but what do you expect. The breakfast buffet was worth the $20 per person for the wide selection to choose from. However, the hotel's main restaurant had a very limited selection. I wife, who is a vegetarian, had to order the mac n cheese for $20! Parking was never a problem and the location couldn't be beat.
The only draw back was trying to get housekeeping to clean our room prior to 4 o'clock each day. This was a problem because we were traveling with our 2 year old daughter who went down for a nap after lunch. I put a request in each morning to request we have the room cleaned by 1pm while we were at the beach. I realize that we were just 1 room among hundreds, but I would have liked to have seen better effort since they were cleaning rooms just doors from ours.
One other thing of note, our A/C unit was leaking condensation so bad that it continuously created puddles on our balcony. For the money this is a nice hotel. However, next time, I am going to try staying at the Sand Pearl Resort. It's a bit pricier but the location is just as nice. There are several places to shop and eat within walking distance of everything.
