I stayed one night after meeting some staff members about an upcoming conference this fall. The hotel is beautiful, the staff was so friendly and cooperative. I had lunch and the food was excellent. Great views!!!

Beautiful hotel with an outstanding location is ruined by the staff and management's lack of attention and poor attitude. It must be a great place to party because there were loud room parties lasting until morning several nights and the staff did nothing to mitigate the situation. The valet damaged our vehicle and denied responsibility and more. I would stay... More

Great location, friendly staff, nice swimming pool area ; excellent for a relaxing pool & beach vacation. The rooms are nice, with enough space, but the hotel building is getting old. The bathrooms are very small (especially since we went there, after staying in Vegas for a couple of days where our rooms had gigantic bathrooms :-) ). Nice outdoors... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in early July. We were upgraded to the presidential suite and all I can say is wow! I think they were fully booked so that is why we got that suite.

We spent most of our honeymoon here and loved every second of it. If you can splurge for an ocean front room, you will not be disappointed. Staff and valet were all very pleasant. Room service was excellent and not overpriced. Portions are huge, so consider splitting to save money. Have nothing bad to say about this place.

I can't even begin to describe how wonderful our stay was at the Waterfront Beach Resort! The hotel is located in a beautiful area, right across from the ocean.

Hotel was a short walk to Main St. Checked into a higher floor for a great view of the beach and surrounding areas. Hotel looks to be under expansion, so there was also a view of the construction site. Nonetheless, the view of the beach and vicinity to bars and restaurants made it a none issue. Did not get chance... More

Loved this hotel! Already want to go back (and to stay longer next time)! Perfect location. Walking distance to shops, dining, and the beach. Beautiful hotel and spacious guest room with a balcony facing the ocean.
