My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. What a good find this was! We had a great check-in experience. The reception staff was very helpful and extremely friendly! During our stay, they were always there with a smile and assisted wherever they could. Even when we were just slowly passing by the reception desk, every time there was a 'another great day in paradise' greeting.
We booked a water view room and checked into our room on the 6th floor - with balcony. The room was good size, very clean, nice and comfy beds, and a clean bathroom. Everything what we were hoping for. Yes, the décor is 50th/60th time but my wife and I all of a sudden felt much younger!! Including the decoration in the main lobby follows this decorative style. Very nice! A couple of other reviews mention that an update would be in order (carpets etc.) They are right now in the process of renovating - including new carpets etc.
The wifi in the room was a bit weak but worked well. The included breakfast was good with a change of items every day.
Overall, the hotel is in a very nice location, right on the miles long white sand beach. There is a heated pool and cabana bar adjacent to the hotel's Swizzel Stick Lounge. My wife and I had a couple of great evenings there. Don, the bartender, is a real pro, very friendly and personable. In no time one gets into conversation with other people at the bar. What a great entertaining place - with an entertainer - every night from 8 to xx.
We were reluctant to leave but the responsibilities were calling. If and when we get back into the area, we will definitely stay there again. We will also recommend this hotel to others.
