We arrived, dropped our bag off, and returned late at night. That was a big mistake for we were put in a room with what this hotel calls "Enironment Hot" water. Upon returning, we had the pleasure of a cold showers. The next morning I reported the lack of hot water and a non-responsive TV remote. That night we returned... More

The hotel could use some updating but who spend the whole vacation at the hotel anyways. It was a cheap place to change and sleep. The beds are a full size bed, which I did not care for being that cramped sleeping with my husband. The pillows on the bed was miniature sized or something they just was not long... More

Hotel is fine, the reception staff were friendly on arrival. The problem came when we arrived at the restaurant, mostly empty. No greeter or host. Eventually a woman breezed past & said she couldnt seat us for 25 mins. No apology or explanation. She seemed more interested in a phone call she was making. After 40 mins went to reception... More

This is absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed. I thought it was questionable based on the reviews and pictures online but it's worse in person. I did not choose to stay here. I was placed here because my child was attending camp and this was the "home" hotel. The entire place smelled terrible - rotten fish/murky musty water... More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times usually with friends when we come over from the UK fishing. On this occasion I was with my family on a Florida Road Trip. This was our 5th Hotel. Knowing the hotel I was confident that my family would love it which they did. The staff were pleasant and polite... More

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights, longer than we usually stay at a hotel. The property is very clean and well kept. The landscaping around the hotel and pool areas make the hotel seem more like an oasis, vs. a concrete hotel experience. Our best note though is about the staff. They worked to make our stay a...

This place is disgusting! They advertise and show beautiful pics of a man made beach, but fail to tell you that it's impossible to even go near it! There was so much garbage and whatever else washed up and the smell is nauseating! Whenever it storms, which is pretty frequent because of how hot it is, it leaves a disgusting... More

What a disappointment this place was. Our first room was called an efficiency which was a gross exaggeration. It was so musty smelling that we dropped our stuff off and took off to explore the amenities, hoping they would improve our first impression. We walked to the pier of the marina to see what the beach area looked like and... More

The hotel offered a lot of nice amenities and the food was excellent on the resort. The room was very nice, clean, and the view was beautiful! The staff was also very helpful. Our favorite spot was the outdoor bar that overlooked the cove. Will stay there again in the future.
