Arrived early April 2014, the hotel is getting some major upgrades, which is good and bad. while oceanfront rooms are the draw I would HIGHLY suggest getting a room on the second or 3rd floor. 1st floor rooms don't have as nice of view because of palm trees and workers start outside very early.. Saturday morning was awoken at 6:12am with a worker outside hammering, then he proceeded to clean dead palm fronds right outside ground units, banging aluminum ladder and chopping at trees.. The room also has water spigot located directly behind bed on outside wall, when they use that water source it is VERY loud inside unit. The sound of water rushing will startle you if sleeping.. Another reason to request 2nd or 3rd floor is maids closet is located in1st floor hallway, at that to get VERY noisy early AM with the housekeepers talking in the hallway outside your room. Beds are warn and very hard.. Positive are that the hotel is close to town center, and the outside upgrades are making the place really nice. If loud music bother you, request a room as far from restaurant as possible as music blares from the restaurant around the pool all day and into the night. Don't expect ice to take to your rooms as there is none.. The staff was very nice and accommodating. if I were to return to this property I would request a 3rd floor oceanfront the north end of building. Pool views are nice, but a little noisy with music playing in addition to noise from people in pool early.
