Great hotel for the price and location. You can walk to downtown in 20 minutes, or better yet take advantage of the free bike rentals.
An upgraded wristband is highly recommended, it gives you access to premium bottles and the beach bar.
Food was mediocre and didn’t change much from day to day, but if you’re creative there’s plenty to work with. The snack bar is good for a quick fix.
$15 a day for Wi-Fi is a bit of a let down.
Anyone complaining about it being a timeshare push need to question how they got themselves in that position to begin with.
The upper pool is loud and great for those who wish to be drunk by 11am. Those less inclined, I’d suggest getting up early to reserve a day bed to kick back on.
For the price, there’s nothing to complain about.
