My mom and I stayed for 2 nights mid-May. The water was still freezing cold, but it was nice getting to the beach nonetheless. We got there late (around midnight) and the hotel was sold out. I think this was due to Crusin Week.
There was some construction still going on but they did end up giving us the complimentary breakfast in the mornings, which was nice. I don't think there was any fruit or a waffle maker, but it was enough to make do.
When walking to our room on the 3rd floor, we noticed construction on the roof of the restaurant and several stores and mini golf i think nearby. The hallway wasn't anything exciting and made me wonder if it'd be as nice as the pictures I saw ahead of time. I did see newspapers left at each room's door. You walk in and immediately enter the kitchen/bathroom section. The kitchen has some cabinets filled with plates, cups, utensils. A small sink, can opener, decent sized fridge, and even a small dishwasher, stove, and microwave. Across from that, they had a high table with 2 stools with coffee maker.
We had a 2 bed hotel room. Wasn't as close to the ocean and high up as we would've liked, but could still see the ocean and hear it a bit. I did notice some noise outside late at night (people drunk yelling for no reason I assume) but oh well. I couldn't tell if it was from people on their hotel balcony or neighboring building not part of the hotel. The room had a sofa bed in addition to the 2 beds, a tv, dresser, and closet. The balcony was nice to have as well.
In the hotel itself, there was a game room (along with vending machines in there), a pool with 2 hot tubs, a business center, and a gym with a tanning bed. Most of these needed a key card to enter.
Overall a decent stay and would recommend, especially if can get a higher room or 1 of the few in the L shaped hotel that are closer to the beach (and not a view of the outdoor pool/bar and tennis court)
Please see my attached pictures to help visualize the hotel. :)
