I purchased a Groupon to stay one night and wish we could have stayed more!
The location of the hotel was excellent... off the beaten path, just the way I like it. Away from the crowd...
The hotel is in the process of being re branded as a Holiday Inn Club Vacations and is being renovated. I have to say we were a bit worried when we drove up to see all the heavy machinery and workers. It was a little confusing to navigate our way to the temporary office, but once we found it the staff was so nice and helpful.
We got a room on the west side with a pool (and beach view). It was a great view to watch the sunrise/set.
The room was absolutely beautiful. Everything was brand new, freshly painted, and well decorated. The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked and very clean. The bed was super comfy and clean. I was floored to see the whirlpool tub and stand alone tiled shower. There was a washer/dryer combo, DVD player, and even an iPod docking station! Overall, I felt like I was at home.
The [infinity edge] pool and hot tub are great. And its just a short walk to the beach. Also available are a basketball hoop, sand volleyball court, tether ball, horse shoes, and picnic tables with grill.
Despite the inconvenience and confusion from the renovations, I gave this hotel 5 stars for the location, the wonderful staff, and the beautiful accommodations. We will be returning!
