We stayed two nights prior to a cruise. This was our pre-vacation to our vacation. I was concerned about the mixed reviews but we ended up loving it. It is a smaller sized hotel and our entire floor probably only had 10-15 rooms on it. We were on the Hhonors floor with an amazing ocean view and a step out balcony. We thought the location was great. Right across from a wonderful beach park and an easy walk to restaurants and the water taxi stop.
Hotel has a great rooftop pool that we spent a lot of time at. Rare you find an 8 foot deep pool these days! The gym is really fun for a hotel gym. So much so our 12 yr old requested a workout on vacation!
Our room felt like it had been renovated recently and showed almost no signs of wear. We found the front desk staff VERY nice and welcoming. If we had any complaint it was the elevators which are terribly slow. There was a slew of girls from Argentina that come every year and they must pack 4 or more per room. Elevators were crammed. We even started using the service elevator!
We would not hesitate to stay here again. We enjoyed the size, view and location very much.
