First, I am not one who is typically compelled to write reviews--positive or negative....just never seem to get around to it!-- but do definitely read them when searching for hotels. However, based on our recent stay and the positive experience I felt I owed it to the team at this establishment to recognize them for their efforts. We just returned home from a week long family vacation and spent four nights at this hotel. From the moment we stepped out of the cab, we were greeted with genuinely friendly "welcomes" and "hellos", a bottle of water for all five of us (free!!), and because our rooms were not ready (very early arrival) they watched over our luggage but tolerated us getting in and out of it to retrieve swim suits, etc for the kids. The service did not stop here. All four days we had an opportunity to cross paths with numerous people from the concierge, to the room service staff, to the wait staff in on the patio and at the pool--ALWAYS pleasant, conversational, and just all around cool people. Always urns of hot coffee available in the lobby in the morning, and a cool juice-type beverage in the afternoon. Beyond the great service/staff, the facility itself is in a great location. Yes, you have to walk out the back door and cross a parking lot to get to the beach. No big deal!! If you want to walk out your door and save a 50 yard walk and be on the beach 3 minutes faster for another $2-300/night, those options exist at other places. It is located within totally reasonable walking distance to a variety of eating/shopping/recreational establishments. The pool isn't huge, but never felt too small. We were there with another family, so 5 kids between us and we spent plenty of time at the pool. Most of the chairs were full and yet it didn't ever seem overwhelmingly crowded. There is a decent workout facility right off the pool, co-located with a spa (didn't use the spa, no feedback for that!). The facility itself was always clean, clean, clean. excellent outdoor patio are with plenty of comfy seating, gas heat towers to ward off an evening chill, and several levels and corners where those who were looking for a quiet corner could escape to if necessary. We are a family of five (2 adults, 3 kids [2 -14 yr olds, 1 - 12 yr old]) and our room was adequate size. Just added a rollaway bed for the boy and we all had great sleep! If there was any one thing that would have made this experience any better it would be to have 2 queen beds versus double beds. But, then that would have just taken away from floor space and probably made the room feel smaller. So if you are looking for a moderately priced (for the area) place to hang with your family for a few days, give this place a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed!!!
