I did not like our stay in the room. We were near the stairs and the pool so there were noises all the time. The room needs renovation but I do appreciate the location even though the room is not ocean front for us. There is no breakfast included with the room charges.

Evaluating $$$ spent with what we got, it was fine. Hotel was great and the personnel could not have been nicer or more helpful. We had a package deal for the dinner and breakfast the next morning. Dinner was just OK. The band was absolutely wonderful and our server, Sylvia 1, was great. There was some confusion the next morning...

Hotel exceeded my expectations. However New Year's package dinner was disappointing in quality and since the dining room was so cold my dinner became cold very quickly.
