After a 10 hour drive, it was a relief to have a hassle free check in. I was given a room close to a side entrance of the hotel, with parking available just outside. A good shower, an excellent bed, and I was feeling great the following morning. The $9.99 breakfast buffet, serviced by cheerful employees (ty Kathy) was a plus.
This is a fairly large hotel, with 2 pools, a hot tub, well manicured interior grassy spaces with flowering vegetation, and even a kiddie sprinkler area. However, the best asset of this hotel is its beach. Just off the fishing pier, the beach stretches wide and far, with cool fine white sand and clear warm water of the Gulf. One can see lots of small fishes in the water, and pelicans and porpoises play and hunt putting on a great show.
I had two lunches at Kiwi's the hotel's snack bar above the seaside pool; both were reasonably priced and tasty. The snack bar could use a TV though; they would get more customers if football games or other sports were televised. My dinner of the hotel's signature dish, Emerald Grouper, however was marred by having too many bones in the grouper "fillet".
A large comfortable room, free wifi, flatscreen TV with lots of cable stations inc. Showtime and NFL, a room refrigerator, and a great beach adds up to a very nice experience.
