The hotel was the best bargain for Palm Beach. The location is great. There is a new mall with cinema, shops, nightlife and restaurants directly across the street. It is also directly on the beach, and is one of the more low rise hotels, so there is not a long trek to the beach. There are huts available on the beach. You need to reserve a hut each day by 4:00 and people line up starting at 3:00. You also need to claim it by 10:00 in the morning.The lobby is open air and there is fresh citrus water always available. The beds are comfortable. There is also a winning casino, a spa and yoga/Pilates in the morning. We requested early check in and as a result we got our room on arrival at 1:00, which was very convenient.
There is a high noise level and the walls are thin. This is a family hotel, so there are large conventions, groups and naturally, children. The elevators are slow and stop on floor two every time for some reason. There is no service elevator for staff,so they share the elevator with their carts. There is also a song that plays when the elevator opens, so request a room that isn't near the elevator. The gym was not near the lobby and felt isolated, so I did not feel comfortable going at night alone. The pools are closed at night. The bathroom shower stall was dark and there isn't a stool. The balcony furniture was uncomfortable, so I dragged a room chair out there when I wanted to read or have my breakfast.
