My family had a blast here. The kids loved the movie at the pool every night and I loved the heated pool. The beach was directly across the street and our favorite fishing pier wasn't too far away. This was our first visit but we will definitely return next year.

Personnel were nice. Like a lot of beach front hotels, they turnover a lot of families. Consequently, there are messes and spots everywhere. These hotels don't renovate as oft n as they should considering the turnover. So, it was not as clean as one might expect. The restaurant was ok. Parking was good and the seagull fights were fun to... More

This was not what I expected. The room was ok but not what I expected out of an IHG resort. Especially since it was my member anniversary night. Resort property was ok. Most positive thing is that it is right across from the beach. Staff was ok.

The staff was very friendly, I was allowed to check in early and was given a room on a higher floor. The rooms are great, the a/c was a lifesaver! The bed was so so comfy. There were numerous activities taking place down by the pool; whether it was Debbie (who had a great vibe) having a hula contest or... More

This place was great for the kiddos. They loved the movie and popcorn by the pool. We had are room on the second floor and it was right in front of the pool so when the kids got tired of swimming they grab their popcorn and watch the movie from our room balcony. The only complaint I have on e... More

The rooms were very comfortable and well priced as well as the hotel offering fun kids activities. The pool was also well maintained and clean. The hotel was very well located to... More

My family and I went for a 1 day stay and it was wonderful! The lady at the front desk was polite and helpful. Definitely recommend this hotel for anyone that's looking for a relaxing stay. The view from our balcony was good and we were on the second floor. The pool was clean. Room was very clean.
