“Best kept secret!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I was recommended by a friend to give this place a try. My wife and kids needed a nice place to stay for spring break and we wanted to save some money as well. We had an excellent time! The rooms are clean, and the pool is very warm. The staff was helpful and made great recommendations as to what restaurants to eat at. This resort had a very warm feeling to it. It was almost as if was a home away from home. Also, the courtyard is absolutely beautiful. And I see some have mentioned the beds as a problem. In my opinion the beds were very comfortable, and I slept like baby. The rates are very reasonable and it is a fantastic value. I'm already planning to take my family back for the kids' next spring break.

Low rates, that's it, we paid for 7 non refundable days, left in 3, room had mold or something to trigger my wife's asthma everytime we went in, (heated pool) very cold, beds were masrhmellos, fully equipped kitchen smelled and had very few dishes. Would never stay here again, even if free.

The rooms are dated.....but they are clean, and for the money it's probably the best value on the beach. We stayed here with 6 kids and 4 adults and the room was more than large enough and very comfortable. 6 days during spring break was less than $700. That let us spend our cash on other things we wanted to do and it is right across the street from the beach.the pool area is really nice too. If you want luxury, this ain't it... But value... For sure.

Pros: the rooms are huge. They have a kitchenette. It's across from the beach. The pool area is lovely.

Cons: The rooms were dirty. The carpet is filthy. The mattresses were so uncomfortable and disgusting. The shower was so small that there was barely room to
Change. The bathroom sink was right at the entrance to the room. The room smelled bad.

I think this could be a great hotel with a total update of the rooms. We literally made the reservations the day we were arriving and only for one night. I wouldn't want to vacation here.

My entire family had the worst visit to this place. The staff was not helpful, the rooms were not what we expected, and to top it off the website was not at all what was advertised. We all complained but it was useless.

No one seemed to care and all we kept getting were lies and more excuses.

We will not go back. I do not recommend this place at all.

We stayed here 2 nights, it has a gorgeous island courtyard. We grilled out a feast by the pool on Fathers Day and really enjoyed the scenic view. The rooms needed a little updating and the beds felt like marshmallows, but the location and scenery made up for all the negatives!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

We stayed two weeks and loved the pool, friendly family-run atmosphere, easy cross-the-street access to the beach and lots of great places to eat. Many, many return vacationers from the wintry north enjoy the large rooms surrounding a heated pool and relaxing in the private courtyard. I liked the ice cream truck's daily late afternoon visit and the smell of the evening cookouts on the grill. The cost was less than half of the modern hotel we stayed at last year, and while accommodations are not as up-to-date, overall the value is there.

Room Tip: Just ask when making the reservation and the honest staff will guide you to the best available room.
