Some people love big resort hotels, but they don't appeal much to me, so maybe I shouldn't have made the reservation. This one looks like a big pink block of social housing, but it's in a nice position just across a small road from the incredible sandy beach, and eight minutes or so walk from the pier. Because the hotel had failed to provide a special bathroom (as I had booked) for my disabled wife, they transferred us to the only suitable available room - a two-bedroom suite with no less than two balconies, 3 televisions, 3 bathrooms, and seating for half the population of Florida, and, to their credit, the hotel did this without fuss or complaint. The suite was furnished luxuriously and tastefully in a very acceptable "posh hotel" style. The second balcony - with sunbeds - was a bit of a waste as the sun never got to it (nor to the first one either, thanks to the size of the opposite wing of the building) and the view was of the other wing of the hotel, but I could see the sea to the right in the distance. The room overlooked the pool, and one of the worst aspects of the stay was the all-day long recorded music which hotel managements in the USA believe is essential; if only hotels could leave us guests in peace.
Public areas were very smart, and both dinner and breakfast were good, if not inexpensive, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Parking is $16 a day ($20 for valet parking), but this is reasonable because you use an adjacent public multi-storey.
So there is nothing much to complain about, but I was glad to leave. I got fed up with the view of pink concrete, and the awful pre-Christmas music.
