WARNING: Ask them if they have any conventions going on for your dates! They had a convention during our stay and we had to park next door at the LaQuinta due to all the parking taken up by the daily attendees! Pretty bad when your a paying guest and you can't even park at your own hotel.
The pool was very large, lots of chairs to lay out in, 2 spas, and a waterfall kiddie pool. Ocean view balconies are very large. King suites were spacious (like a Embassy suites) with a living area and separate bedroom area so ideal for families or just wanting a bit of privacy from your work area. Nice restaurant, helpful and cheerful staff. No bar service at pool, so you have to go get your own drinks inside. They do offer weekly and monthly deeply discounted rates for Winter Texans. We wanted to stay for 3 days but it was cheaper to rent for a week in December.
Hotel is located at the far northeast end of the island so it's about 3-5 miles from the center of entertainment or dining. Directly across from the Sea Turtle Rescue (a must see for any animal lover).
Several red stains in our room and hallways (appeared to be from spilled drinks).The worse comment I can make is that they were cleaning constantly in the lobbies with a cleaner that smelled like Hexol (hospital smell) and it was an extremely offensive odor.
Overall the parking, smell of cleaners and a bit far in location was the only downfall. The hotel, pool area and views were great!
