We were a party of 8 adults and 5 kids staying in Florida for Christmas. We spent 2 nights at this hotel.
The hotel is located far away from Ocean Drive, so if you are looking to be in that area, this is absolutely not the hotel you should choose.
However if you are looking for a wonderful access to the beach and a great view on the ocean, this is absolutely the place you want to be in.
We had 2 regular suites and 1 penthouse suite. The regular suites are really good and roomy. We appreciated extremely the penthouse suite. We were 4 adults and 2 kids of 2 years old. The baby beds are great as those are real beds which I rarely experienced even in more expensive places.
The room was NOT available until 4 p.m. and we got the feeling that, no matter what, they would not give us the rooms earlier anyway.
The direct access to the beach is great and the 2 small swimming pools and the 2 very small jacuzzis are often crowded.
The breakfast at "Chez Gaston" was okay, for a price of 22$ per person I believe it to be worth the money if you are really hungry.
The downside, is the noise of the airconditioning.
All in all we had a good experience in this family friendly hotel. We would certainly return there if we would come back with children. However if we were to be amongst adults we would prefer a hotel closer to Ocean Drive.
