Our overall experience with this hotel was just OK. The staff was friendly and the beach is very nice. Also, the little tiki bar by the pool had great food and very friendly staff. But that's where the positives end. The hotel overall feels old like it was in need of an update about 20 ears ago but hasn't ever been updated. Housekeeping never cleaned our rooms - only replaced the towels. They never made the beds, vacuumed the sand up or wiped down the counters. We also had an issue with the front desk and hotel security not being on the same page. We asked the front desk if we could bring the bean bag toss game down to the beach, and they said we could. No one offered to help - the boards were very heavy and you have to walk up a big staircase to get to the beach. As soon as we got down there, the hotel security told us we had to bring it back up - again with no offer to help. When I went to tell the front desk, the guy just looked at me and said "Oh, that's weird." No apology or offer to rectify or talk to security. So overall, this hotel is just OK, and probably too expensive for what you get.
