I'd read some bad things and was prepared for a bad hotel but it was really nice. Our room was fresch, clean and big. The best night sleep in the entire 3 weeks in USA. The wifi was only in the lobby but that was ok. You got a little confused when you looked for the lobby, it's in the... More

Zeppomia, I hope your trip back to Sweden was a pleasant one! I'm sure all your friends will love your amazing Florida tans. Some of our reviews are very harsh and it's always refreshing to see one like yours. We have so much to offer here and I'm glad you were able to experience everything on property. It's so amazing...

Went here for weekend getaway despite the reviews. This place is great if you want to party!!! We thoroughly enjoyed the beach entertainment & the food! Not a place to get R & R but we knew this from the reviews. The place needs sprucing up & some paint but other than that it was a blast. Just plan an... More

Hotel was extremely loud, would only recommend if you are looking to stay up all night, yelling and screaming with drunken college kids. The food was moderately good. We left a day early because didn't want to stay up all night listening to drunken people and band right outside room

We might have booked elsewhere due to the huge number of very bad reviews but, when we booked barely a month in advance, there was nothing else with rooms directly facing the beach without paying twice as much. We booked 4 nights only, then stayed elsewhere (with no view) for a few nights just in case we were desperate to... More

Steve, Thank you for your review. We have been trying to get all of our rooms updated and I'm glad you noticed the changes. On the weekends it can get loud, but we do have rooms away from the music on the south side of the building. If you ever come back or make a future reservation we try our... More

Hi Lisa, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay here and that you were able to get away from the awful winter you've been having. All of the staff really is friendly, but what's there to be mad about when we live where people vacation? I'm glad you and your girlfriends came and experienced our own litlle paradise! We can't wait... More

This resort is on the beautiful Golf beach and has a roof-top restaurant with pretty good food but terrible cocktails and lousy service. The room cost $200 and had bugs, cracks and stains. The partying was loud and crazy until 3am. This was not what we were hoping for, traveling with 2 very young children.

Had lots of fun and great food. The people were helpful and polite, even the owner showed up to talk to his visitors. The sun deck was amazing, Ralf and Jay Jay made it fun. I will be going back soon!

Pett1, Our food and drinks are great! I'm not being biased because I work here either, all of our employees enjoy being here just as much as our guests. Mr. "C" has owned the hotel since day one and he loves seeing everyone having fun and experiencing what he has built here. I'll be sure to let Ralph and Jay... More

The rooms are old and not worth the money. I asked when it was time to check out could we still use the pool, I was told yes no problem. They have a lady sit at the pool and ask everyone name and room number. My kids were told they only had 5 minutes left to swim because I didn't... More

We are from Miami and wanted to get away from the awful tourist and locals in the Miami Beach area and go some where there are pleasant people. This was definitely the location.
