Stayed here in April with the family during spring break. All the rooms faced the ocean. The pool was nice size for the child and she had fun. The ocean was right across the street and easy to access. Several places to eat and drink within a block or two. Would stay here again.

I was slightly disappointed when our room wasn't available when we got there , but it was only 12:45 and they called our cell at 3 that our room was ready. Check in time is 4pm. Location: Great. It was across the street... More

I think a room higher up would be better and recommended for future stays. We found a nice breakfast area just outside... More

Dear Msmack924, as explained on several occasions, the insurance claim is being processed and you will receive an update early next week. I understand your frustration, but the process takes time and the claim must be fully investigated. As discussed with the planner of your event, the hotel was never notified that your entire group was attending a event off... More
