I normally don't write a review until after my stay at hotel. I have an event planned for October and I wanted to view the space and location. While I was there I met 3 amazing people Michele Cunningham, Vanesas Preze and our watier Vance. I have planned many events but this is my first out of town event and... More

This is an older hotel arranged so that all rooms have a view toward the gulf and each room has a small balcony. Our room was equipped with a large fridge, microwave oven, TV, hair dryer, ironing board, iron, and small safe. The beds were comfortable. Though the air conditioner in our room worked pretty well, it was still humid... More

I will start this by saying that I have stayed here many times. We have always enjoyed or visit and found the employees helpful and friendly. The family management company that runs this resort has high standards and I have always been impressed. I assume something has changed. We arrived about 45 min prior to check in and were told...

The location is great, all rooms face the ocean with a small balcony, you can tell it is a old hotel but they are refurnished and clean, I would definitely stay again. The store next door called Wings is a fun store for everything. My husband enjoyed the Sports Bar down stairs and with live music

When we arrived they were still prepping rooms, so while we waited Ed, the concierge, offered to take all of our luggage and store it away - including chilling our bottle of wine - and recommended a great restaurant (Nick's) for dinner - which turned out great! When we returned, our luggage was neatly arranged in our room - which... More

Check in and check out went smooth. They upgraded us to higher room with a view. Staff friendly and helpful except for one lady at the desk I encountered when I inquired about the shuttle. I did not get her name unfortunately. She was very curt with me, no smile. Holly and Adriana were the best though. The free shuttle... More
