Our first impression was not positive as there was a large group of teens all over the hotel, but the following day they had disappeared. We had a nice room with comfortable king bed and balcony above one of the pools. Initially we were concerned the noise might disturb us but the nighttime curfew appeared to be strictly enforced. The...

I found your Hotel to be wonderful. The rooms, amenities and service were great. My one criticism is minor. My wife and I took a walk on the beach and could not decipher the Hotel from the other condos and Hotels. We ended up walking way past it and had to backtrack. Almost all are painted a similar color and...

Definitely not the experience we expected.

Loved the room and how beautiful the beach was outside the Hotel. Had a couple of minor glitches that really didn't hurt our stay. The only ice machine in the building was out of order, and the outside lights did not come on at night so that you could see how to put the door card in to open your...

We stayed there for 4 days and I booked through an app which I paid. We stayed there without incident, then I see the hotel charged me $254.18 in addition to what I paid to book the room. It was an unauthorized and unjustified payment. I've called numerous times, they seem to have gotten a different card number on my...
