I was in room 203 One bedroom condo. It was very nice and clean I definitely would stay there again. I like that the soaps and shampoo came out of a dispenser instead of having those thin bars of soap like other places. No washer or dryer was in the room but there is a wash and dry room that...

Victor was a man who gave me a pretty bag with a nautical theme! The hotel was clean and the staff were nice. I liked the soap dispensers! I loved the balcony view. The hot tub, pool, and sauna were very nice! I would come again!

We stayed in room 601. When getting off elevator hallway smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The room had an even stronger smell of stale smoke even though a no smoking room.

Thank you for your candid feedback and I absolutely agree with you that you should not have experienced the concerns in the bathroom. That specific area is part of our housekeeping and maintenance checklist, and it is very disappointing that it was missed by both departments, including the inspector.

Clean units, pool, lobby. Washer dryers work fine but need updating. There is a bar/restaurant onsite end of march to ?. Foods good. Lots of local restaurants that are good too. This is a public resort but it it also a time share. If that's what your looking for keep me in mind.

I apologize that you experienced these concerns during your stay - it is truly not a normal occurrence, even with the change in weather at the oceanfront (warm to cold). Although the resort was undergoing renovations during your stay, your service should not have been impacted. Fortunately, our contractor was able to address your concerns immediately. Michele C.
