Great place for kids and adults alike. Our room (707) had a beautiful view of the pool/lazy river and beach. Hotel is easy access to everything; shopping, and great restaurants nearby. Rooms were very clean, lobby was inviting, and many activities for kids throughout the day (pirate party by pool and beach and nightly kid dine-in movies). Lazy river is... More

Really impressed with the location of this Holiday Inn Resort. Rooms were very nice. If we had small kids they would have been in heaven. Some of the front desk staff were not as friendly but Nilla was awesome! The fire alarm went off twice in one night while we were there. I think I read this in another reviewer's... More

Thank you for your review and especially the comments about kids and the fun they can have here. I’m really sorry about the fire alarm being pulled while you were here. I’m pretty sure that will never happen again. Please come back for more fun, sun, and happiness. Warm regards, Ron Wilson, CHA General Manager More

We spent six days here in April 2014. Everything about the hotel was spotless, the food at the hotel restaurant was excellent and The staff was the most accommodating of any place we've ever stayed.

The location is fantastic and both the beachfront room views are excellent. You are in for a treat if Nilla at the front desk is there to greet you. Not only is she warm and friendly, but she goes the extra mile to help you.

After two very uncomfortable nights on the worn out mattresses next door (at the Days Inn), we decided to move over to this hotel. We had originally booked the Days because it was significantly cheaper. You get what you pay for! Even though the Holiday Inn room was about $60 more per night, the accommodations and amenities were well worth... More

My husband and I decided to take a last-minute trip to a beach, and we landed at this hotel. It is lovely--super-clean, super-quiet rooms, and a great staff that was always asking if they could help with anything (except for one cranky desk clerk who didn't believe me when I said the Wifi was down). The beach-side room with balcony... More

The staff at the hotel were wonderful. We arrived quite late but still had a very warm welcome. Michelle on Reception in the morning was five star. We weren't sure what the resort hotel would be like as there were so many youngsters around. They were all perfectly behaved and very well mannered. Thank you everyone for a great break.
