Great family place, nice large pool and close to beach. Will be returning for sure! The staff were very nice and accommodating, we had 2 visitors and it was no problem for them to get a wrist band for the pool. We are very happy with our stay. We do wish a late check out was available to choose from.

Stayed in a 100-level (second floor) room and had a good view of the water and ships. I'm sure the rooms higher up have a better view, but I was very happy with our view. Our room was nicely decorated in a beach theme. Refrigerator did a great job. Room was stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. so we ate breakfast... More

We stayed here a few nights this past week, and loved it. The staff was extremely friendly. We stayed on the 5th floor and the view was fantastic. I would highly suggest booking a higher floor. The room we stayed in was also great, and decorated very beachy. We will definitely return!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. We had the efficiency for $400 for our whole stay. It's right by the beach and has a boardwalk from the pool to the beach! The pool is excellent and they even have a hot tub! We had a beach view room but our room faced the side and we could... More

The staff was very friendly and prompt in getting us checked in. My husband and I stayed in room 311, it was very clean and well decorated. The problem with the room was that the curtain, which covers the entire exterior wall and is all glass is that it did nothing to keep out light at night. It was so... More

Thank you for submitting a review and your comments. I will look into the issues with to much light coming into the unit and pass it along to the owner. We strive to provide all guests the best costumer service and apologize our staff/security did handle your issues with the music at the pool better. We hope you will visit... More

The exterior of the building is run down, literal rust on exterior. I realize the beach conditions are harsh on the exterior, but basic building maintenance such as paint should occasionally happen. That said, we were very pleased with our unit -- we thankfully had a fairly updated one with decent quality furnishings and appliances. The pool area was great... More

Thank you for submitting a review and glad you enjoyed your stay. While all buildings on the beachfront have issues, we try to withhold nonessential repairs until the fall and winter seasons as to not disrupt our guests during their stay. However, we have a wonderful maintenance crew who work hard to make sure that the property looks its best... More

Went for a wedding anniversary and informed the front desk. They took care of getting the florist into the room. They consistently are friendly and helpful. The property is clean and well kept.
