If you are with a municipality and are sales tax exempt, good luck! Reservations were made by contacting the phone number on their website which ended up being Reservations.com. When checking in, the hotel staff directed me to Reservations.com for a credit. Reservations.com states they do not honor sales tax exemption.

Thank you for your review and comments COFB_204. We only list our own contact numbers on our website. Your reservation was booked through a 3rd party site. It's possible a pop up window came up for you. Anyone wishing to be tax exempt would need to call the hotel directly to set this up as booking a 3rd party site usually results in prepayment for which you are charged room and tax at the time of booking. Once this occurs the hotel has to charge the amount of your prepayment when you stay. If your booking was made directly with us the tax exemption would apply with proper documentation. I hope this clarifies information for you. Best wishes and thank you for staying with us.

A buddy and I stayed the week of October 21, 2019, and we had never stayed at this resort before. We absolutely loved it. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly especially Joel Schunk their Guest Services Manager. Although the resort had nothing to do with the weather, it was fantastic. The resort gave us a room with a view of the ocean. We look forward to staying with you again in the future.

Because of our circumstances, we only needed to spend the night, so we didn’t take advantage of the amenities. We were upgraded, without our request, and were given a nicer view. That was a kind gesture. The lobby was decorated for Halloween and staff were very friendly. I think for those who are planning to spend a few days, they will not be disappointed. The location is fabulous.

Wet carpet near the air conditioner. Noisy air conditioner. The cleaning is terrible, the day I arrived there was a dead animal in the bathroom, he was there 5 days. One day a cockroach appeared, of course for the bad cleaning, no surprise. The toilet and bath drain clogged. musty smell. And to complete the misfortune, on the last day (24 hours) we had no internet. Bad experience.

Thank you for your review and comments. It is certainly not a normal occurrence at our hotel. I did investigate into your claims and am aware of a room move due to wet carpet from the heavy rain on the date of your arrival. I'm also showing that we did give you an upgrade from a standard room to a water view room at no additional charge. I'm not seeing where you had notified anyone of the additional occurrences during your stay, but my apologies you had encountered this. Best wishes.

We came into town late Friday night to check in for a 2 night stay for a wedding we were attending on Saturday. Originally I booked our room there because that was where the wedding was originally suppose to be held. Then they changed the location. So I kept our reservation there because I had used my Frequent Flyer Miles. And boy am I glad that I didnt pay full price for the room for 2 nights. The staff that we encountered were very pleasant and friendly. The pools were ok, nothing like their pictures. The beaches and property were probably as good as they would be after a tropical storm. But, the room was definatly nothing like its picture on line. It was so outdated. Hardly any electrical outlets to plug in our electronics, very small. We had a room with a king bed. The bed was comfy I definatly slept good. But you could tell it hadn't been updated in a while.

Thank you for your review and comments Galiena. We do have multiple room locations throughout the property and the pictures are of the rooms themselves depending on room location. I do see that your reservation was for a standard no view room as it was booked through a third party site. We do offer courtyard view and water view rooms as well. It's possible these rooms were not available at your time of booking. We'll definitely mention the outlet issue with our staff. I do hope the wedding was a success for all who attended. Best wishes
