“Has seen better days!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We've been coming to this resort for many years. Both hotel and marina were a nice place to visit. Not so any more! Both Doubletree and LXR really know how to take away the niceties that keep some coming back. The entire atmosphere has changed. There is very little customer service, there is no upscale restaurant anymore. I will say the small lobby one had good food but limited. The service was also good. Not sure I will go back after using the restroom however. A good indication of a resorts cleanliness is usually found when visiting the restrooms.
I could go on but will not. I am not a fan of this place anymore. It WAS great at one time.

Staff friendly, generally clean, rooms very small. Lots of hidden costs which ramped up the price. We booked 2 rooms, 3 people in each room, and requested rooms together, we didn't achieve this and were cramped and pleased to leave. The facilities were good, location great.

Room Tip: They are all the same, SMALL

I always like Hilton, especially Doubletree, but this was an unexpected surprise even by Hilton standards. I was on an emergency visit for a sick relative and simply selected the most convenient Doubletree. That was the best decision ever. The hotel and amenities were fantastic. Due to the nature of my trip, I was not able to enjoy the fantastic services- like the catamaran outing etc., but I will definitely return for a proper vaca!

My fiance and I just stayed here Friday June 20th- Tuesday June 24th for a much needed little vacation away and we LOVED it! Everything was great the people, the workers, cutomer service everything was wonderful! The staff was great for everything and the hotel itself is gorgeous and well kept and VERY clean! We also loved that the bridge of the hotel conected to the beach it was great! One thing that was wonderful was that we did not rent a car and at first were a little worried going down because we werent to sure what was going to be around and there was everything with in walking distance which made it great! there is just so much to do just at the hotel itself we went deep sea fishing on the flamingo and we had a blast there were also a lot other great things around the marina there as well! :) We can not wait to come back and stay here again!

The reservation was for two rooms, double beds, each with 4 people inside each room. In the notes I specifically stated to keep the rooms as close together as possible & the highest floor. When I booked the room, I also did not book the 'Garden' room - which was stated no where in the reservation. One room got upgraded to the 11th floor of the main tower & the other room got stuck in a completely separate building, across the sky-walk on the 2nd floor. There was no communication from the two concierge workers as to why it was split up, it could not be rectified and there wasn't anything they could do. The upgraded room was fine, minus the fact that it was supposed to be a non-smoking room & we got the after-smell of smoke in our room (1107). The room that was not upgraded had an AC plug-in unit attached to the wall to cool down the hallway. There were roaches in the hallway. If it wasn't for the fact that we got in so late & we had an early flight to catch, we would have looked for another hotel in the area. When we first arrived to the hotel, the man working valet was not communicating on what we needed to do to get the vehicle valeted properly. I myself had to approach the gentleman and figure out what we needed to do to get the vehicle valeted. Our driver had to come out of the self parking to come through the line again & valet the vehicle. I always stay at Double Tree hotels, and I have NEVER complained or had an issue with any of them. I am absolutely upset with our stay and will NOT stay at this location ever again.
