We had a three night stay here in a city view guestroom on a breakfast package. Originally this hotel was expensive when we first looked, but we did get a good online rate later so worth checking for specials.
- great breakfast selection
- good welcome including a hot cookie
- good large room with moden furniture
- pleasant Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries
- pool (but very small and limited opening hours)
- free access to beach club via hotel bus about 15 minutes away - this was very relaxing and nicer than the beaches near town
- Not allowed outside food at all inside the hotel
- Pool closes at 6pm - this is too early (and previous reviews have commented on this; the hotel said they would look at this, but they obviously haven't. Come on Hilton management - open your pool longer)
- no wifi in room; so half the hotel guests sit in the lobby with their iPads etc accessing wifi in the evening!
Aside from the above, this was a 5* experience. We would come back and the beach club was the key selling point.
