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

Great view off the back, mini golf and boat rentals, restaurants, and a great central beach location. Needs some TLC, but terrific room and staff. Hopefully they'll finish the new water park soon. We had a suite with a full size kitchen and separate bedroom. View of water and boats from both Windows.

My girlfriend and I stayed here from this past Thursday until Sunday. Like the other reviewers here, I experienced the same issues. The only option to eat at the hotel is Jimmy Guana's. The restaurant on the other side Marker 34 Grill has been closed for a few years according to some websites. The service at Jimmy Guana's is pathetically... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend for a long weekend and we really liked some parts of the hotel but others were not so good. The staff at the front desk was extremely nice. The girl was able to check us in early which we really appreciated. She also recognized us as platinum elite members and made... More

The positives at this hotel are a friendly front desk staff and suites that are well designed. However, the atmosphere at the pool of this hotel is more like a construction zone. The restaurant, Jimmy Guana's has the worst service I have ever experienced, with a stifling inside temperature. The sheets are thin and "pilled" and the sleeper couch is... More

We stayed at this hotel booked through Virgin holidays as frequent club members for 3 nights. We were given an upgrade through virgin from a standard room to a room with a kitchenette. This room had a sliding door onto a main walkway that wouldn't lock and was being secured by a flimsy bar. There were many other maintenance issues... More

We stayed for 2 nights in May and got an upgrade when we arrived. Our amazing room was an apartment on the third (top) floor ‘Harbourside’, with great views of the water and the boats cruising up and down. The apartment was huge for just 2 of us and we loved it, although we didn’t spend that much time there... More

Ashley, the front dest attendant, was great. She under promised and over delivered. We did not ask for an upgraded room but were provided one at check-in. The front desk staff members were friendly and thoughtful.
