My family loved this hotel and loved the room with a balcony overlooking the pool and the gulf. We enjoyed the pool and the lazy river in the pool. The beach was nice and clean. Staff was good about taking care of our concerns. We would definitely go back to this hotel for another vacation.

We stayed there 2 weeks ago and had a blast. I want to thank Kizzy at the front desk for being very sweet for the entire stay. Also Eula in housekeeping was very nice as well. The only issue I want to address is our checkin. We have been staying there at least once per year since this resort has... More

I really love staying at this hotel but there are some down points about it that I must point out. First of all, there is NO security at this hotel which means they allow anyone off the street to come and crowd the pool area. Locals and people from other hotels take all of the chairs and crowd the pool... More

Thank you for your review. I promise you we do control the pool deck but sometime non guests do get in. We staff the pool deck with 3-4 crew members who check for bracelets. When we find them they are asked to leave. There are guests who come to Riptides and hang out at the Tiki bar who spend money... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and nice sized and had a microwave, keurig, and a larger dorm sized fridge (not the mini fridge you usually see in hotel rooms). Beds were comfortable and there were two types of pillows (firm and soft) for everyone to choose from. The pool area... More

A pretty good hotel overall, especially if you have young children but..... 40-50 mins wait every morning to get a table for breakfast during our week's stay? Really? Didn't the designers of this hotel think that guests would want breakfast? The staff worked so hard and did their best but I felt sorry that they have not been set up... More

I would not recommend this hotel solely based on location and price. The staff was very accommodating and tried their best to make our stay better but.... quality was less than expected. One of our comforters was dirty, the cleaning staff skipped us two days in a row and the beach/ocean quality was not as it appeared in website photos.... More

I have a hard time considering this a resort, but do think it was a great place to stay for a weekend. Although a bit pricy at $869 total for two nights, the rooms were clean and the free breakfast included in our room package was very good. The pool are was very nice with plenty of towels, free bottles... More

Stayed for the Blues weekend with our family of four. The hotel did an amazing job over an extremely busy show weekend and we could not complain about anything, but it was expensive! The breakfast was especially good and the servers went above and beyond.
