My family and friends have been staying here off and on for the last twenty years. The place is clean, friendly staff and their goal is to make your stay a memorable one. I recommend this to couples and families. The kids will love the beach and great large pool.

Evidently, and unfortunately, I picked the wrong weekend to stay. I had 2 young kids and a teenager. Beach water was freezing so we decided to use the pool. Pool area was full of college kids with glass beer/wine bottles. They were loud and every other word was a cuss word. Needless to say, we did not stay in pool... More

Front Desk Staff, Matthew was very accommodating & informative. We got a better price by calling the hotel rather than booking online. We chose the room with patio with efficiency & living room in the south tower. Our patio overlooking part of the coconuts bar & grill & beach volleyball court and sand dunes. This time of year it's the... More

This was our fifth year coming to this hotel. The first three years we stayed in one of the cottages and the last two years we have stayed in an oceanfront room. The staff have been excellent, the room/cottage always clean, comfortable with plenty of hot water. Already have reservations for next year.
