“Fun Family Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Stayed here with our adult children and grand children. We were there on Columbus Day weekend on Saturday and Sunday night. The outdoor waterpark was closed for the season, indoor park was open Saturday and Sunday. Motel is very nice, fairly new, rooms are large. Nice décor, staff was helpful. Beach access is handy and close. Off season, so nothing was crowded. Only glitch we had was part of the waterpark was shut down on Sunday afternoon due to malfunction, but they gave us a partial refund so no big deal. Swim up bar was fun. Took advantage of free taco bar and cheap drinks at Shrimphaus on Sunday during NFL games, it was awesome!! I would imagine it could get pretty noisy and crowded during the high season, but we really enjoyed our time there during the off season.

Very clean - best smelling hotel I have ever been to - very nice room - beds were comfortable - quick walk out to the ocean and quick walk to the heated pool - we were there mid week off season - had the place to ourselves pretty much - easy to get to the main drag - would def stay here again !

Room Tip: ask for room near ocean !

Thanks so much for the kind words regarding your recent stay.

Our use of Loblolly Pines throughout the property does provide that fresh, clean smell as well as ambience that is not replicated anywhere else.

Large Denver mattresses provide the comfort to give a good night's sleep before hitting the beach (steps away) or whatever activity you wish to undertake while visiting our Island.

We look forward to serving you again soon!

Stayed here after a very disappointing 2 nights at the Travelodge. It was much better. Clean and comfortable. I'd give it a five star rating if it had a balcony off our room overlooking the ocean. The view was great. There were a lot of small children running and screaming through the hall and lobby but even as unpleasant as that was, it was still preferable to the other place.

Stayed September 2014

Thanks for taking the time to review after your stay with us.

We are family-friendly and at times, due to the popularity of our waterparks, have quite a few families in the resort. This time of year is a great time to come visit for some quality beach getaway time when the Island is much more quiet and the weather is at its best. The indoor waterpark is currently open weekends for Guests who wish to enjoy, yet separate enough from the lobby, beach access and restaurant/bar areas to provide a quiet getaway as well.

We are glad you enjoyed the stay and look forward to having you visit us again soon.

Bathtub shower slippery, no rubber mats available. Cannot communicate with most of staff - unless you speak Spanish. TV not working - only Spanish channels available. Poor service and high prices at restaurants.

Came down here on a girls trip and can't wait to come back with my own family and little kiddos! Amazing resort to stay at.
Great swim up bars.
The beds were the THE BEST.
Super close to the beach.

My advice for your trip.
Find Pedro the bartender and have him make you a Jamaican Breeze.

Thanks so much for taking the time and posting your review!

We try our best to provide something for everyone....sitting on the beach, we have a lot more than the waterparks! Multiple restaurants, shopping, swim up bars, and conveniently located near fishing, dolphin watches, parasailing and more.

The hardest part is sometimes rolling out of bed since we do use thick, plush Denver mattresses in all of our rooms and the beds are all king or queen sized.

Can't wait for you to come back with family! See you soon and thanks again,

Mike

We spent the day at the waterpark. We did not stay at the resort overnight so I can't review that aspect of park. We had a great time. Staff and lifeguards very competent and attentive. Would come again for sure!

Yet again, a fun time was had by all. My husband and I met with my family at this resort and we had an amazing time. Truly wholesome fun. We had adjacent rooms with a door in between rooms so we could walk back and forth and we had beach front view. We had breakfast in the seaside grill and although it was a little pricey but it was worth it. And the beach was just a few feet from us. It was gorgeous weather. Overall I recommend. Also if you want to not pay 499.00 per night go when it's off season it will be less expensive. Or save up and then just shell out for a very good wholesome fun for the entire family.

Thanks Melissa for the kind words and great advice on adjoining rooms, places to eat and ways to save money. Of course, we have rooms at lower prices even during the summer as well and always provide free parking and a 40% discount for waterpark entry for resort Guests.

We look forward to seeing you back again soon!
