We were just there for the Memorial Day weekend trip. I read some of these reviews and was a bit nervous about staying there, but thought we would give it a try! We should have listened to the bad reviews! We arrived Friday and we were very disappointed in the whole islands, it was very run down. The Radisson and this place were the nicest on the beach!! We got there early (2 hours before check-in) and they were nice enough to let us check in and not charge us the extra day. We went up to the room and as we are walking up the stairs there are roaches all over and not just little ones, big ones!! My husband convinced me to go to the room. We are actually surprised at how nice it was from the first glance. It was clean for the most part (Pergo floors newly painted walls and nice furniture) and no bugs in the room, which is a good thing. We brought up all our bags and got unpacked. We went out on our balcony which overlooked the beach and noticed the railing was made of the plastic railing and was very wobbly!!! I would not let my kids out there for fear of them falling over if the fell or leaned on it too much. Turned the TV on and only got a few channels and most were fuzzy. Went to the beach, it is a public beach and there was a lot of riff raff there and trash on the beach. There were beer bottles and cans around and we usually saw clothes left on the beach from the night before. We did not see the pools so could not comment on them. We ended up sleeping on the pull out sofa in the living room because the bedroom bed was very hard and there is a window that looks outside had a security light on all night a was very bright in the room at night and made it hard to sleep. As we stayed there the roaches started coming into the room, as I was going to the bathroom a roach run across the floor the last night we were there and the stove was not clean and there were bug in there. We also had something stolen there, we left our water socks outside our room to dry off from the beach went to dinner and when we came back they were stolen!!! We did not feel safe there, even though it was gated parking, cars would follow you in before the gate had closed and they rented out party room for the day and lots of people came in the parking area for that. We also had our car broken into at the local Joe’s Crab Shack and a few things stolen so all in all it was not a great visit! I would not recommend this hotel or this beach for a family vacation. We saw hookers doing their thing and many other things that I was glad my 2 kids did not see! Go somewhere else for a family vacation, even if it means spending a little more!! It will be worth it!!
