I read several very negative reviews on this hotel and almost cancelled my reservation. Glad I didn't! The room was very clean, bedding was extremely comfortable, pillows were nice! Room had a fridge, microwave and the usual small coffee pot. The hotel was very busy but the elevator waits were not too long. There was a nice breakfast area and the breakfast was very good. The selections offered would please anyone's cravings. The pool area was nice and a pool bar was open for several hours during the day. Leaving the pool area, you were directly on the beach! Beach access was wonderful! Chair and umbrella service was available. Rentals ran $25 for 2 lounge chairs and umbrella for the day. There were a few negative items...the air would have been more comfortable at a lower temp in the hotel. The hallways were warm. Also, the ice makers were obviously not large enough to handle the guests at full capacity. The staff were very nice and attentive. The location of the hotel was great. Would stay here again. The positives outweigh the few negatives!!
