Our stay at the Hilton was pleasant.
The good things: great location, great view even if you're not facing the ocean, courteous service, overlapping dark blinds (great if you don't wake up with the sunset), excellent pool and nice private beach.
The bad: humidity! The a/c doesn't remove the humidity thoroughly and our mattresses smelled musty. I'm unsure if this problem was unique to our room but I don't think so. One of the lights was out and the toilet leaked a bit. We placed an order to have these fixed and they didn't. Our coffee supplies were never complete. We were either missing coffee or cream or sugar. The ice machine didn't work in our floor. They were changing phone systems and we didn't get our wake up calls. Good thing we had the iPhones for backup..
I would still recommend the hotel but only if you can get it at a discounted price.
