We stayed in the back building. We were upgraded to a room with a fridge and microwave (which you have to request when booking the rooms.) The elevator service record posted in the elevator was from 2011 (not comforting), wireless internet did not work the majority of the time, breakfast was cereal, muffins and juice and there was absolutely no place to sit and eat besides two little tables and a sofa with a coffee table, vending machines were a little pricey, pool was kinda dirty but mainly sand in the bottom because when people come back from the beach and get in the pool sand comes off. The walls are very, very thin. We could hear people in the rooms next to us shutting the closet doors and drawers and we could hear just about every sound that was made in the hallway. The water pressure wasn't great and the faucet in our room leaked anytime the people next to us would use the shower. The shower also took about 30 minutes to drain completely. Maid service was okay. We would come in from the beach around 2 or 3 to shower to go out to dinner and room service still hadn't made it around to bring us clean towels. Not too far from the beach just a little bit of traffic. Not a horrible place to stay if you are on a budget and booking at the last minute like we were but would definitely like to stay somewhere else next time.
