My husband and I chose this hotel for being far all the noise and more secluded. What we didn't expect was two conjoined hotels that share a pool. We went swimming at 9 p.m. and then minutes after getting in, there were literally 19 rowdy kids jumping in, three of which jumped on top of me or ran into me.... More

The Good: Big room facing beach. Very clean and comfortable with wonderful bedding. Beautiful lobby and open area for those with work to do or simply "hang-out". Great pool and plenty of seating and unlimited towels. The Bad: Elevator in parking garage allowed us access to all floors at 10:30 pm without the need to swipe/insert room key on elevator... More

This hotel is where we last year hosted the visitors from our wedding. The staff was helpful, and allowed us to use their giant fridge to store our wedding cake overnight. The rooms are nice, big, and clean. The disco pool was a very entertaining touch for the kids. It's right on the beach, too.

I chose this hotel for the pretty pool, but later realized I wished I would have asked for an ocean view or at least a pool view. When we got there, I asked if we could get a room with an ocean view, and was told, "sure!". Our room was placed on the 4th floor and actually had corner windows,... More

We loved being away from the crowded beachfront. Great pool and we loved the cabana. Great rooms. Clean. Friendly staff. My family and I will certainly be back. Next time, we'll be sure to get there early for check in in order to get a ocean front room.

I stayed one night while in town for a wedding. The hotel was in a great location and my room had a view of the ocean. The hotel was close to restaurants and the pool area was enjoyable. Oh, and I loved the bed and the pillows - very comfortable! However, the carpeting in my room (324) was worn and... More

I was on the Island for work and it was quiet and nice. I had stayed across the island in the past but this location gave me more access to restaurants. Enjoyed my stay and the staff was very friendly and nice. The first morning there was a line to order breakfast but there was enough staff and they were... More

It's a great hotel, right in-front of gulf. If you can get gulf-view room, it would be awesome for the stay. Staff was very friendly and cooperative. You can use shuttle service to room around; with-out worrying about parking and gas :-). This hotel has an excellent pool. The reason for 3 stars: * I opted for King-size bed and... More

We chose this hotel because of the other reviews and what we thought that we could get room wise for the money. This hotel is nice, the staff is nice, the pool is very nice, the pool side mini-restaurant is wonderful and our overall stay was very nice. The only thing that left us feeling slightly bothered was the fact... More
