Such a great vacation! All the staff were friendly and helpful. Jose at the front desk took the time to recommend some things to do around the hotel and print information off for my girlfriend and I. Great food and live music! The attached dance club was fun too! Definitely will be visiting here again! It was such a nice vacation especially after being stuck at home for Covid-19.

Hotel's Favorite
We loved the terrace room overlooking the water! Jose, at the front desk, was incredibly accommodating! He greeted us warmly every time we walked through the lobby. He is definitely a rare gem! The room staff was kind as well. The atmosphere was happy and vibrant, the beach was lovely. We were there during the week and the music was fine, the day music was a great touch, a reason to return and the outdoor night music, until 11, was fine. Any later or louder might have been an issue but was not in our case. A fantastic stay, we rarely return to locations but this a definite return destination for us!

Upon check-in, we had to be moved to a third room because of cockroaches (we have photos and videos). We had booked and pre-paid for a studio with full kitchen. The room we ended up in did not have a kitchen, but we were still charged the higher price. The front desk clerk was friendly and told us she would take off the $20/day “resort fee” for our trouble. The thing with that is that we saw people all week walk up off the beach without the resort wristbands and use the facilities for free. This was a Sunday and we were told no manager was available. The next day we asked to speak to the general manager Paul. He was repeatedly “unavailable” and, unfortunately for us, a lower level manager with a name tag that read “Cody” was finally sent out to speak with us. When trying to respectfully explain our two hour delay in finally reaching our room due to the first two being co-inhabited by what we thought were cockroaches, we were condescendingly told by “Cody” that she was already familiar with our situation and that they were actually palmetto bugs. When we looked them up and found that they are members of the cockroach family, she rudely asked “what is your end game?” At that point, we told her we found that question and her tone offensive and walked away. While the other resort employees were quite friendly, the management here obviously did not want to be bothered by what she described as an insignificant issue. If they think cockroaches/palmetto bugs are not worth mentioning, I can only wonder what their thoughts on bed bugs might be.

Our resort has won accolades for our diligence in housekeeping practices. Florida does have some outdoor bugs that do occasionally find themselves inside, much to their and our dismay, when balcony doors are left open. It was confirmed by our housekeeping director that this was, in fact the case. Our staff apologized profusely and acted quickly, offering you a complimentary upgrade and a room move as well as discounting $100 from your bill for a total compensation package of $213. The staff member who assisted you with this was a supervisor and acting manager on duty for Sunday. When you came to request to speak to another manager the next day, we are happy to know that they were already made well aware of your situation. Apologizing again and asking if there was something more that we could do for you as you did not seem satisfied at our current solution. This is when you became very offended, though offense was not in any way meant. We are sorry to hear that you felt offended by being offered further compensation for your inconvenience of moving. We are glad to hear that you found the rest of your stay and the rest of the resort staff pleasant apart from the rocky start though.
