“Visited the Tiki...Two nights, two different experiences!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We visited here on both a Friday and Saturday night mainly for the karaoke. Friday night, It was busy but not crazy crowded. The staff was friendly though not super knowledgeable of the menu options. The karaoke was fun and the lady in charge was friendly and did a great job! Extra bonus....she sanitized the mic each time someone finished singing! AWESOME!!! Night ended at 11:30 and we left. Saturday night was a different story. Staff not quite as friendly, karaoke still GREAT, but the atmosphere and clientele was a different breed. We arrived a little later than the night before (around 9:00). It was a lot more crowded. A lot more smoke! A lot more insanely drunk people! I have never seen so many young and older drunk people. I get it...it's a resort and bar. BUT Some of these people were so intoxicated that they needed help walking and these were people in their 50's-60's! WHAT!.?! It was no longer a fun atmosphere but one that was uncomfortable and at times unsafe! The staff should have cut these people off if they were still serving them however, I am not sure some were not bringing their own drinks in with them! NOT good! Would return but only if the environment was like friday night...fun, friendly, and relaxed!

This is a great location, with a very short walk to the beach. The rooms are clean and modern. Our room had a kitchenette in it with a microwave and a stove top. The AC worked great and the beds were very comfortable. If you stay more than a day, beware: The maid service wasn't the best. They didn't make our bed because my husbands shorts were on it. I get that, but they didn't take out our trash or bring us fresh towels after our others were discarded. The noise... is a whole different ball game. If you are going there for a party weekend, you will be fine. The only quiet time you will get there is between the hours of 3:30am and 8:00am. Parking can be a challenge, especially if you drive a big vehicle. You might get stuck, or have to do a 30 point turn to get out. Great little bars and restaurants near by, and there is a happening tiki bar on site.

Room Tip: Your best chance for sleep at night would be a room no where near the pool or tiki bar.

During our three day stay at The Lighthouse, we had a variety of reactions. First, we used a booklet coupon for the first night and got a really good room. However, the next two nights, we were moved to another room which was barely big enough for us to move around in. We experienced issues with water, door latches, and sewer smells as well. The room was probably the smallest of the entire resort and the last one to not be updated. We did get quick service from the maintenance man, however; he was great! But there was only so much he could do. I think it was the inexperience of front desk workers and security that added to many of the issues. We were told the room we were in first was rented out. It never did get anyone in it. We checked. The larger room next to us was empty so we asked about it and was told it was already taken. It wasn't. Needless to say, the next time we stay there, we will know what to make sure we ask for and what to make sure we don't get. Upon checkout, the manager was extremely nice and apologized for the experience. On the other hand, this is an excellent location, walking distance to the beach and times square shops. It has two wonderful pools and the tiki bar is very nice. Just make sure you don't get room 166 unless it has been expanded and updated.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 166. Don't stay in the room above the Tiki Bar unless you don't min...

Stayed here four nights, midweek. Every night at dark a large group of local teens comes into the pool area and parties till 2:00 AM. Talked to the Manager one morning and she said this was the first she heard of it. After talking to other guests at the pool they said this happens every night and they know it at the front desk. Security, which is the bartender, will not come out to kick them out until someone calls and complains. During the day all I see is families and small kids, no teens. When they leave you can hear many cars starting and leaving. I was told that management actually encourages the locals to come in at night to go to there bar and use the pools at the guests expense. Nice place with a good location but do not plan on getting a good nights sleep.

We love it here. The location is great. Its right across the street from the beach. Near the pier, restaurants and shopping. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere. The tiki bar is so much fun, and the food is great. You can spend the weekend here and never leave the property and have an absolute amazing time.

Location perfect! Tiki Bar amazing great food and drinks! Staff very polite. Only issues I had was rooms are not very clean at all. My family and I felt uncomfortable with the cleanliness. Also rooms need serious updating and for rooms to have actual kitchen supplies to cook. My room did not have frying pan I asked for one and after 3 hrs the cleaning lady gave me an old tiny pan and said that's all they have. The pools are nice but they do not check who walks in and out of it. There are signs only guest with room keys but they do not check. We meet people who were at pool everyday with friends and bunch of kids who said they live about 20 mins away. They come to just jump in pool. That was disturbing because we saw the mess they leave behind. Other than that great location to beach, restaurants and stores to shop. I don't think I would stay again only because of the cleanliness of the rooms. I complained about it and was told maybe manager would do something for me and next day was told "oh no we do full cleaning every 3 days" smh that's nasty sorry. Change that and maybe will stay for a week again. Oh and Wifi horrible if your by room 305. Need to setup extenders for better wifi connection in rooms.
