We stayed here over the 4th of July. We payed for a 4 star hotel and while the facilities were really nice, I think we expected more. The location is beautiful and very close to the beach if you are walking, and lots of local restaurants. There were LOTS of families, being close to Legoland. I think because of the price I didn't expect so many families. I also expected a higher level of service for a 4 star hotel. Again, everyone was very nice, but the front desk was slow to answer the phone when we called down, after 8 pm there is no music or energy by the restaurant/pool area, even though the pool is open til 11, and there are plenty of kids out there until it closes. We did meet some great valets, great folks working the pool in the day, and they are very helpful.
