We booked a week at the Dee Jay because a relative was going to stay too. We got there two days early to stay with the relative. We asked if we could check in a day early and we were told yes. Our place had a separate bedroom with no TV or air conditioner. The whole place was filthy. The... More

This hotel has an excellent location Close to the beach and easy to access, get around. The staff (thank you Maria) was extremely helpful and went out of their way to accomodate us. We were there as a family and also to celebrate my mother´s 80th birthday. We were well taken care of. Great apartment, spacious and clean. Great price... More

On arrival we found there was a slight problem with how I paid to book the hotel. Maria said; you look like you need some rest let’s take care of this tomorrow. She then took us to our room. This was a real nice gesture and the issue was resolved the next morning with no problem. We found our room... More

The room was not clean. We had a 2 inch cockroach in the kitchen. Linens were stained. We had $450 stolen from a wallet hidden in the dresser drawer. We also found that 3 other rooms had been robbed. Talked to a detective and were informed that 6 students from a swim team were also robbed in 12/14. There was... More

We are truly disappointed that your stay this year at the Dee Jay Beach Resort was less than optimal. For almost a decade, we have enjoyed having you as a repeat guest every March. We can not stress the importance of locking unattended rooms while visiting the pool or enjoying the beach. In addition, all rooms are equipped with digital... More

We love the El Mar Area and it is so hard to get a nice place at a reasonable price. We were 2 blocks north of the Pier and right by 2 Beach Portals so it was easy to get to the water. Maria went out of her way to make our stay excellent and she succeeded! We were only... More

My husband and I found this place online and called to book it. Pictures online looked ok, but they must have been 15 years old. Maria, who we spoke to and checked us in was very nice, but the place was very old, run down, dirty and not what it looked like online. The price was high for the shape... More
