Those that give this roach motel a good rating must not get out much! We prepaid 8 nights for this dump through Hotels and were promised to be in an oceanfront resort. Truth was our room was across the street from the beach, and was anything but a resort. The management did very little to make us happy or comfortable, they said they would charge us $10 a night extra (instead of the standard $20 a night) to be in a building on the same side of the street. In actuality we realized the following day that they went ahead and charged the full amount for the entire stay (an extra $160). Thank goodness for online banking. We only stayed there overnight, my family did not feel safe there, and it was beyond dirty (bugs crawling up the walls, undesirable people hanging around the pool blastin loud music until all hours of the night. We went down the street and got a beautiful suite at the Best Western Pelican Beach Resort (I plan to post a positive review for them next) for the same price. We were diretly on the ocean, clean, spacious rooms, and a friendly staff. The worst part was we had to wait a week for the refund from Hotels. The best thing that Villas by the Sea can do is tear down those rotten old buildings and start over!
