Perfect for a relaxing getaway. The suites are clean, spacious and well-appointed The balcony was large (but looked out over a parking lot.) It’s just a short walk to the beach. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

Spacious, clean, everything worked but it does show signs of wear. Room 160 has a half inch gap under the door, you may want a rolled up towel for that. The slatted blinds don't block the "street lights" of the common area so it's broad daylight all night. Slow drains in tub and

Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologize for the inconveniences you faced during your stay. Our restaurant offers a wide variety of choices for breakfast. It is disheartening to hear about that experience and we will send that feedback to our restaurant manager so he can look into the situation. We hope you will visit us again.

We stayed here over the Christmas Holiday period (10 nights in total) and had a really good experience. The rooms were large and had 2 larger than double beds in them. There was plenty of space in the room and three of us didn’t feel cramped. There was a large walk in wardrobe

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone it is in desperate need of remodeling. Our first room was horrible. The mattresses on both beds were worn to where you could feel the springs and there were huge dents in the middle of them. The beds were very uncomfortable to sleep on.

What incidental hold is charged at check in?
Don't recall exact amount but it was released at check out. Very very nice, friendly helpful staff, clean well kept rooms, big buffet breakfast.

How much is breakfast at the hotel? Is it any good?
It varies in price as it is served in the restaurant on site from a choice menu. It was good quality at standard prices. I believe if an adult has breakfast and has a child they eat free from the children's menu. Hope this helps.

What activities are within walking distance?
There is also a relatively inexpensive trolley bus which travels the main coast road if you wanted to explore further a foot. Stops 5min walk from hotel.

Drive was not bad from airport. There are stores near by to by beach toys. We did not see any chair rentals, but I thought they were advertised. Hotel gives towels for the pool, but they are the size of dish towels! I would suggest you bring your own. Didn't use the waterpark...our kids are older.

We were in a standard room. Large enough/had two double beds and a unique shape (hard to describe) that made it feel bigger. It looked out at the interior walkway yet that wasn't a problem. We were just disappointed when we returned late at night after our first night to find the room had not been cleaned. Also, value for $$. May have been because we were there in early March and spring breaks differ for the colleges in the US. Don't worry, great location. Lots to do for a family close by including a splash mountain. The pool area was lovely too. Sorry, I wrote such a negative report yet I really believe they need to spend some $$ to upgrade their "aging" facility.
