I have stayed at this hotel many times. This visit, over Thanksgiving weekend, confirmed my belief that this hotel cannot be beat. The location is outstanding as it's an easy walk into town.

We had the best time. Beautiful rooms and excellent service. We will be back yearly. The rooms are right over the beach. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. I can not say enough about the friendly service. The beds are very comfortable and the linens super soft. Loved every minute.

The property is gorgeous and it is literally on the beach. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable with clean sheets. The room also opened to a balcony to see the ocean and sunset. Our bellman Trevor offered incredible service! He brought us ice and waters literally minutes after we requested them. He also was very...

My husband and I had a room on Surfside. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Splashes. Service was excellent. We were able to rest and regroup after the holidays. I had a massage at the Aquaterra Spa. It was a wonderful retreat and experience from our hectic life!
