We had a standard room that faced the gulf. It was a nice view and the room was nice but a little dated. There are no elevators, so if you have problems with stairs, ask to stay on the ground floor. They have a basic, free breakfast or you can pay $8 or $10 for a larger meal. The basic breakfast was enough for us and was pretty good (cereal, yogurt, fruit).
The grounds and pool area were nice and I heard good things about their spa from friends who used it. Their pool side grill had good food. My salad was really fresh. The service here was OK to good, depending upon who was helping you.
We did have some issues upon checking out. I had lost my email and called to confirm our check out date, when we booked the room we had debated staying another night. I was told my check out was for the day I wanted. When I checked out, they said they had us booked for another night and charged us half the room's cost. For full disclosure, the key card does list the dates you've booked, but I didn't think to check it since I'd confirmed my desired departure date two days prior. I was pretty frustrated since I had called to check on this and had been told otherwise AND some friends had changed their rooms last minute and fees were waived because the hotel was full. Fortunately, my husband called later and the person he spoke with waived that charge immediately. We were very appreciative.
All in all a good stay. It's not too far from the small town and they have a shuttle to get you around if you want to get a taxi and avoid renting a car.
