First - a great location right on the beach, with exceptionally nice pool. So new the location didn't show up on GPS, so clue to find it is look for the large 'beach ball' on the roof. Food was very good, and reasonably priced in lobby restaurant. But...it was only recently opened and the staff was not ready for guest... More

We enjoyed every minute we spent here both inside and out. We had breakfast and lunch at the hotel with no complaints on the food or the service. The pool is amazing ad most of our time was spent poolside with only a brief walk on the beach. We were thrilled with the staff and will return.

The restaurant manager did what he could to accommodate for lack of service in the restaurant. We ate 3 meals there each day (still paid for some of them). They were under staffed and not trained well at the time.The manager seems to have the skills and took our advise. The house keeping was not timely or routined (3 days... More

The hotel was clean and brand new but has much work to do to be worth the money. My kids loved the pool and beach. The design is very poor---lobby was constantly WET and chaotic. Staff was unfriendly except for the young man in restaurant who was hustling. Room was nice and clean but we had a suite so I... More

Our stay was July 6-11, 2014. We saw several opportunities where this hotel can improve on what they already have. Once they figure those things out they will be able to go from good to great. (FYI-Upon arriving into the area, be prepared for traffic). The hotel is really nice. The staff was friendly enough, but not overly enthusiastic. Luggage... More

We enjoyed our two night stay here..the room was clean beds weren't as comfortable as we would like. Checkin was fast but not very inviting or welcoming. I am big on customer service so that was a thumbs down. We did have dinner here the two nights but honestly I think food is overpriced and could be set at a... More

We visited the week of the 4th. There was a mistake made when we got there and IHG could not seem to get anything right. After 2 days the GM stepped in, made sure we had a room thru the visit and on day 4 of dealing with IHG (horrible experience) the GM made everything great. Great leadership produces great... More

We had a great trip!! The hotel is new, very comfortable, and clean. The pool was perfect for our small daughter when we weren't enjoying the beach. The restaurant had great food. The hotel doesn't rent umbrellas and chairs. However, they use an outside company. They are set up at the end of the private beach access. They were very... More

My wife and I had a great evening planned for the last 8 months; I literally booked a room at this hotel when I was deployed in September.

This resort is about a month old and you can tell because everyone is still trying to figure out how to do their jobs. The room smelled chemically new and was present the entire week we stayed. The bar closed at 10, boo. The buffet breakfast was great but expensive if you only get a small plate. The beach and... More
