This place is great. Great location right on the ocean. All rooms have some view of the Ocean. Loved that Outback Steakhouse right on the property. They will deliver to you anywhere on teh property. The pool is great... very warm. Hot tub is small but nice and secluded. Bar staff is great. Outdoor seating for dinner looks out over the water. Bar tenders are wonderful! Beach area very nice. In the evenings there is a wonderful outdoor live music.
We loved our room and the hotel staff, breakfast and everything was great. We stayed in a side view room.
The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is none of the side view rooms have fridge or microwave. We were told we could request a fridge which we did but none was ever available for our stay. It's 2013, MOST other Hampton Inn's now have fridge and microwave. There was plenty of room for both of these in the room. How much can it cost? step that part up and 5 stars all the way!
Also, Sea Monkeys dive shop is RIGHt on the property. We went snorkeling with them at Cheeca Rocks. they are great! (will write a separate review about them) We also swam from the hotel beach out to some rocks and did our own snorkeling.
