“Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

The pros: Location is amazing! You can't get closer to the beach. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating - from the front desk, to the guys on the beach (thank you Colby and Frank) setting up beach chairs and umbrellas. We didn't spend too much time at the cafe/restaurant but when we did everyone was great! We stayed in one of the top floor suites which had fantastic views and was very spacious for us and our 5 year old. King bed in unit was comfortable. Parking and beach chairs are free which is rare for the area (we've stayed at the Marriott Beach place and W hotel down the street and had to pay for beach chair rentals and valet). Boogie boards and swimming noodles are available for use as well. In room wifi is available for $5/day. A steal compared to $19.95/day next door at the Grand Pelican.

The cons: Pool is small. Laundry "room" needs some TLC. Felt very dirty. Lots of flies which freaked me out. Bathroom in the suite needs to be renovated. It's old and pretty cramped. There was a large hole, crack in the bottom of the tub (on the outside). Housekeeping was fair. Hotel provided fresh linens and towels daily, but the bathroom mirror, counters, glass table and coffee table in the unit were never wiped down. We found an old beer cap on the floor from a previous guest. Air conditioner units in the room are noisy and older and could use a cleaning.

Room Tip: Highly recommend a suite on the 6th floor so no one is walking around above you. If you require a ro...

I hate to say how much I love this hotel... I want to keep it for myself. THE BEST staff that I have encountered in a long time. The location is nice... the beach is beautiful and the hotel itself is so clean and comfortable.... This is my second trip here and already booked my stay for 2015... will probably try and come once more this fall. The food is great and Mike "Hippie" Sinasac makes a great white sangria...

Room Tip: very clean and comfortable rooms...

We stayed at Sun Tower before and after a cruise. The first room we had was a suite. It was excellent - spacious, clean oceanfront room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Pool area very nice among the palm trees. Restaurant was very good. Outdoor seating on the ocean. Great service, reasonable prices. Food excellent. On our return visit, we had a king room. Not as nice as the suite but fine. Room was not as clean. There was a hole in the wall by the sliding glass door. When we looked over the balcony, someone had been sick on the ledge below. This did not give us a great feeling but we know this would not be the norm. In any case, we enjoyed our stay here and would return. Great value on the beach in a more residential and quiet area.

Room Tip: Get a suite. Suites are on the corner with extra windows. Beautiful room with separate bedroom and l...

Just stayed a few days at this hotel and loved it. Hotel is small and quaint, which made it ideal for a short vacation. The best part of the stay was the hotel and restaurant staff, they absolutely know what friendly, genuine customer service is. The room was large and clean, pool and courtyard were inviting, the restaurant had great food and the beach was perfect, no crowds. Best if you have your own transportation, buses and cabs are hard to get. Recommend this hotel and would go back again. Keep up the quality customer service, it is greatly appreciated!

This place is the berries! Upon arrival we were greeted by an extremely friendly gentleman at the Hotel lobby front desk. He was happy to assist us with any request and made us all feel right at home. My kids were delighted to find a terrific pool conveniently located just outside the lobby.
Our room was very clean and spacious with incredible views of the Ocean! The water appeared to almost surround the Hotel it was so close. The staff was sooo incredibly helpful during my entire stay! We never felt the need to leave this fantastic sheik cool spot.
The beach area was kept clean and was accompanied with a very enthusiastic guy (Tom) who was more than glad to assist with setting up chairs and umbrellas. We frequented the Hotel grill which was truly great. A gentleman named "Hippie" was so kind to my entire family. Christine the GM was a slice of heaven to deal with! WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!

I don't know where to begin with this review. I guess the first thing to say is if you are hesitating - DON"T!!! BOOK THIS PLACE!! I love the review MichaelFeeney74 provided. He is spot on with his information. The staff and I mean everyone single one of them consistently strives to make your day the best it can be while on their watch. Once you meet the Christine & Billy you quickly learn why this team is so focused on their customers- it comes from top down, and their interest of your comfort is GENUINE!!! I wish I had more space to write - have so much more to share! THANK YOU ALL FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE.
