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.

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

Stayed here for 4 nights after two weeks in Orlando. Nice clean hotel and good pool facilities. Only downside was number of people smoking around poolside and lack of shade at pool. There are no umbrellas available to use with the loungers at the pool leaving those not comfortable sitting in the sun all day having to find the loungers... More

This is a very nice hotel. We had a two story, two bedroom room with a view of the harbour and a kitchen. It was like a small apartment. Very spacious and across the street from the beach. They had a nice kiddie pool and an adult pool nearby. Can't wait to go there again.

I stayed here for a girls trip, March 2013. We had a standard room. We loved the open air theme! Cute mini golf course. Comfortable beds. While we enjoyed the location of the hotel, we didn't like how our tv didn't work. We asked multiple times for someone to look at it, nothing happened. Oh well. We also requested towels... More

This is a good hotel, nothing special, but fair for the price. Its about a 5 minute walk, if that, to the beach. Its very close to several restaurants. I didnt try the one onsite, as I felt the ones within walking distance were better options. The people at the bar were nice enough though. The pool was a good... More
