The hotel is in an awesome location for beach and shopping and restaurants. The room is nice, clean and comfortable. The hotel restaurant has no breakfast bar but this is not a deal breaker. The bar has nightly music and while I am here admittedly in the low time of season it was not that active a place so little... More

We stayed here recently, and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The rooms were very clean and spacious, beds comfortable, and staff was beyond helpful. The pools were great and the hotel was conveniently located by the beach, a few good restaurants and the beach trolley.

Can not wait till the water park opens next door. Also the beach was a very short walk. The 2 pools were nice and it was not overly crowded. The kids eat free was a nice feature as well. The golf course was nice as well.

I stayed at the hotel for one night by myself for a little "staycation". I spent the afternoon at the pool which had a few too many tattoos and beer bellies for my taste but I enjoyed my bucket of rum punch regardless. I got a king room which was VERY spacious. I did find my sheets to be a... More

Thanks first and foremost for the priority club upgrade to a very nice 1200 square foot suite. This "resort" is a little older but still has good character and a friendly staff. My room was very nice, although I will say it was a "townhouse" so if you don't like walking upstairs don't except this upgrade because the only bathroom... More

My second time at this hotel and I enjoyed both. The rooms are nice, clean, and spacious. Has a 18 hole mini golf course right outside of the rooms. Also, the hotel is walking distance to restaurants, CVS, and a quiet white sand beach. Perfect.

We were upgraded to a two storey suite with views of the harbour. The suite was clean and fresh. The kitchen was useful especially the full size fridge. Although there are no sharp knives, we ended up getting one from the kitchens. Housekeeping left us cute little towel animals, a very nice touch. There is building work on going around... More

Booked an ADA room. Other than wide walkways, nothing is accessible. No grab bars at all. Room was immaculate clean and very well maintained. Cudos to the staff on that. Public restrooms were all Nasty. Every one, every time we used them. There is NO WAY to get a person in a wheelchair to the pool deck, so while our... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are very sorry about the hotel not being to par as far as handicap friendly, due to the construction or our new waterpark. I have advised housekeeping about the public restrooms and have noticed significant improvements there. Your your response are noted and taken to heart. We hope you... More

We spent a week here. We had a two story condo on the third floor. It had a great view from our balcony of the waterway complete with paddle boarders and dolphins. Only a two block walk to the beach. There were great restaurants on-site and on the way to the beach. I will plan to visit again next year... More
