Although I did not stay there, I was interested in checking out the new "Sand Bar" beach bar with my sister and her family who were staying there. We had a great time! Very friendly servers and great cocktails by the pool. We listened to live music provided... More

enjoyed the hotel and staff. Weather was nice, sunny, little rain. I am 86 years old and we just enjoyed the pool, tiki bar for lunch and the people. What made our trip enjoyable was the towel girl named Taylor. Because i have walking difficulty she put chairs up for us and brought our towels after being in the pool.... More

Dear Steph, As I stated in our prior correspondence, we did just completely renovate those rooms in June. Our scope of work included new exterior walls, patios, sliding doors, sheet rock, wall paper and PTAC unit. So again, I must say I am confident that whatever illness you came down with was not mold related. I believe that our staff... More
