We visited in November, when the weather was still nice but water in the pool too cold to have a swim. However, we enjoyed our stay, room was comfortable (executive floor with a fridge). We also went to the restaurant with nice food and good service. There is a Rainforest Cafe, which is a must to see especially with kids.... More

Stayed here last night and it was just ok. The pool was fine... small but enjoyable enough. Room was nice also. Its location is great being close to 61st St, Landrys, Rainforest Cafe, etc. The bar is a little run down and when we went for drinks we didn't feel like staying. The biggest thing for me was that housekeeping... More

The rooms were roomy (for 2 people) and had a fridge and microwave, which was nice and we didn't have to specifically request it. Except for finding some long strands of hair that didn't belong to me (think it was housekeeping) the room was very clean. The bed and pillows were very very comfortable. The staff was courteous and helpful.

Very friendly staff. Nice room with comfy bed. Walking distance from beach and several restaurants. Very nice pool area!!! Only bad things are the road you have to cross to get to the beach and none of the vending machines work (although the staff was quick to refund).
