The hotel property was very lush and well maintained and gave you a remote resort feel even though you are in the heart of a big city. The property is located about 15 minutes from the beach. It's a great location near all kinds of shopping, and across the street from the Isle Casino. Guests here can also share privileges at the other 3 Wyndham properties along the beach, but this property has the best amenities of them all, most likely since it is not located off A1A near the beach. I still would pick this site over the others due to the amenities.
Amenties - Beautiful lush landscape and fountains, spacious pools, multiple hot tubs, cafe open for lunch, pool bar, on-site spa and first rate gym, live music on the weekends - local cover band Sekond Nature had one guy on an acoustic guitar perform and he was very good. Activities provided daily -- only thing we participated in was an afternoon ice cream social at the Activity Center. Decent ice cream sundaes, probably better off just getting ice cream at the Cafe since more flavors available there. Stick to the basics at the Cafe. Hamburger and fries were good, but their taco night was terrible -- leftovers from previous nights with stale chips, dry meat, crusty nacho cheese after re-heating it too many times.
Concierge - Typical timeshare elbow twisting. They told us that we should go to the 60 minute talk to hear about the RCI transfer rates of Wyndham points to be going away -- not true.... The timeshare sell is still the hard sell to get you there. Avoid if at all possible. Nothing was really gained by going....
Did I say I loved the pools? :o) Very nice....
Suite of rooms - Very nicely done, recently remodeled, VERY comfy soft beds, better than most places I have stayed, stone kitchen countertops, whirlpool in master suite (didn't use it while there).
Pompano Beach - Even with Hurricane Sandy having passed thru right before arriving, the beaches were very nice. The area has recently been renovated with beautiful landscaping, street lighting, pavers, new restrooms. Note that several of the facilities are locked, don't know why, so make sure to pick your beach area accordingly. I would prefer just parking for free at Whyndam Royal Vista and using the beach in front of that property.
Isle Casino - only has slots and poker. They do have a roulette/craps slots table that uses real dice and real roulette table with machines to place your bets. Pretty cool. Casino is very nice inside with a great deli that has a full extensive menu. Never got to try the buffet. Whole casino is non-smoking which was awesome.
Definitely would stay here again!
We stayed in the high rise towers rather than the 3 floor building connected to the front desk. I t...
