I booked my reservations 9 months in advance via the phone as the room descriptions were not clear. I told the reservation agent exactly what I wanted as I had stayed in this resort in the same room (1410) on at least 2 other occasions. 3 weeks prior to my vacation I called to verify that I would get the...

I can't speak for the newer section of the hotel because I stayed in the four story section. Yes, it is somewhat dated but very clean and certainly priced right for the convenience of two pools, three whirlpools and a gorgeous beach. After all I came for those reasons and was hardly in my room at all. Not only that... More

Nice beach resort in desperate need of a makeover. Staff was friendly and tiki bar served a good lunch. The draw of this resort is the location - close to restaurants and the circle. The beach was amazing. But get there early as the umbrellas and good locations go fast. If you go, need to book an updated room.

Location great. Near to the Circle which is great for eating, drinking and shopping. Beach is stunning. Was in the older building which has bad reviews previously so was a little concerned before visiting. Yes the rooms need updating, but they were a great size and very clean. Stayed in rm 409 which had a good view of the beach,... More

Has it all! Stayed in refurbished room facing the gulf. Worth every penny! The only good rating rather than excellent was the dinner. Many great places to eat at St. Armands Cr. Going back next year! Steve H.

Have previously visited this resort and had such a brilliant time so we decided to get married on the beach here. The staff as usual were excellent and our sea view room was huge and comftable. A big personal thanks to Gary the shuttle driver who became our chauffeur and wedding car driver for the day who helped us throughout... More
