I have stayed here before and had good service I noticed some of the bad comments and I did not experience anything like that thank goodness! I have stayed at other places on the beach that are not half as nice there are not a lot of options. This beach is perfect never over crowed. We were put in the older building but requested a kitchen so we were moved to the newer building.
Everyone was very helpful, they have the kcups for coffee and I need to drink about a gallon we asked for about 10cups and they left them, there was no place on the hotel to get coffee! Add a coffee shop or give me a real coffee maker.
View was fantastic ask for a higher room, pool service we didn't really use except for some drinks and they were very nice. The beach service was great they set up the chairs and umbrella and even walked back to the hotel to blow up our floaties, cost $15 for the umbrella but that is a deal compared to some places.
Now for the bad, VERY old decor, it's looks like the golden girls decorated it. The air in the common areas is not so good, almost no air in the new building elevators and NONE in the old building elevators. No spa :( anywhere on the beach that we could find.
I will continue to go back here but I hope they redecorate and make a few small changes.
