We arrived late, after dark and needed an early night as we were getting up early again. The reception desk somehow seemed to think that the three of us, work colleagues, were sharing a room. Even though our booking was for 3 separate rooms. I wasn't getting any joy out of the clerk for additional rooms and he checked my... More

I had to ask about breakfast, and was told that my rate does not include breakfast, which was not true. She had to check again and realized her mistake. I... More

The Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, this was the first stop on our 11 day trip. The room was very clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean. The Pier and shopping center are about a 10-15 minute walk along a beautiful boardwalk. The food and drinks were great, but will be much cheaper off property. Its... More

Radisson are great with our kids, give us great rooms, and great service. Kids love teaching the chef how to cook "egg in a hole" that we saw other guests asking for it!

Good staff, lovely common areas. Bathroom floors are waterlogged due to shower door not sealing the shower properly. Seems to be a design issue. The views are great and bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was enjoyable and the service was good. If they just sort out their bathroom issues it will be a great hotel

The hotel locates just close to the beach and has an amazing seaview. It is also convenient to go to city and airport, just 10 minutes. If you just want to be relax, you can walk to the beach just one the other side of the road.
