My daughter picked this hotel online for a family trip to celebrate my Dad's 90th birthday. The occasion was special and so was the hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and well-appointed with fridge, microwave, nice TV and free wi-fi, and the staff, especially the front-desk and fifth-floor housekeeping, went out of their way to accommodate us. The attached parking garage is a plus - you can park on the same level as your room. The giant salt-water aquarium is very cool - we watched the diver feed sharks, moray eels and other fish. We enjoyed the Starbucks on the premises, although most days we took advantage of the excellent, free daily coffee prior to walks on the beach a block away. We had fun renting the hotel's scooters. We shopped at their nice, large surf shop and at Ron Jon's right next door. The pool is situated street-side on the ground-floor of the parking garage, which allows for sun and shade. It is not large for an outdoor pool, but has a waterfall feature kids would love, and a very nice hot tub under the waterfall. The only two negatives I can cite are that the room air conditioner was a bit loud, and the cable TV channel guide was cumbersome and slow. Overall, it was a great stay. We would definitely stay here again.
