Great, fresh food. Tried the Grouper Chèks, Scallops and Seafood Chowder. Fans all over to lerp it cool. Wish I could spend every Saturday afternoon this way. Great music with beautiful oceanfront setting. Service was the best. Highly recommend.

Have been visiting for over 20 years and as the outside music and atmosphere is a great beach spot, there are many other better places to eat in the area. Not much effort put into the menu, seafood just didn't seem like local fresh which should be expected. If your looking for a beach hang out with music and a... More

Clean and spacious apartment accommodations. Great front desk staff. Closeness to the beach was added perk. Walk just less than 100 feet and you are on the sand. Family loved the pool and adjacent restaurants. Palm Pavilion beach side grill food and ambience is wonderful.

The hotel is small as are the rooms, but the location is great. Older hotel, but was clean and had great service. An easy walk up the main street area with shops and several dining choices. Easy walk to the beach, just past the Palm Pavilion beachfront restaurant. Another beachfront restaurant/bar was just across the parking lot.

Much needed vacation was marred by room location. The staff and manager were nice, but unable to fix the problem which resulted in very little sleep for my family. I booked a gulf view room ( got a view of the fire station and a little bit of sand, no ocean view at all) and upon arrival was given room... More

Stayed in the 1 BR. Apartment with the family. Great location, close to everything especially the beach. Super clean. enjoyed every part of being there. The restaurant which I believe is by the same owner next door also great.

My family of four and I spend two nights here over last spring break. Check in was easy. Plenty of parking at a very busy spot on the strip. Our two double bed ocean view room was on the second floor and it was very small. The sides of each bed touched the outer walls. The ocean view... well you... More

My family of three stayed here June 22-26. I had done my research and read all the great reviews. This is really a fantastic place. The location is perfect.
