Upon arrival it had all the qualities of being a 5-star resort, location on the beach and boardwalk. Lobby was spectacular and the reception was excellent. I was assigned to a high level room overlooking the water (beautiful). The room however was dated and lacked the 5-star décor such as the carpet peeling up on the corners (also well worn) and wallpaper doing the same. If you can get past those 5-star busters the hotel was a good place to stay in the area. Great breakfast buffet in the mornings serving both North American and Chinese. The management was very helpful.
