“Spring Break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

Being a Priority Club member afforded me the opportunity to take my girls on vacay for Spring Break by staying at this property. We were warned during booking the reservations, recieved a phone call by a member of the staff prior to our arrival and recieved a notice via mail regarding what to expect. This was followed by one last warning at check in. I understood there would be a dj playing until 4 am, however never staying at this hotel, i didn't understand that we would be able to hear the music from inside our rooms until 4 am. I spoke with other families on higher floors who said it wasnt as bad, but we were on the 4th floor. Getting an elevator was difficult- we took the stairs on most occassions. Staff and security were extremely personable. Due to being the only hotel with a second dj, on the beach, the crowd would settle here from other hotels along the strip. If you wanted to enjoy the beach, it had to be before noon or after five. The pool was nice, however over-heated and on the warmer days, it didnt provide any relief. My bed was broken, i did sleep on it the first night, but reported it to the front desk the next morning. It was either replaced or fixed before that evening. They were quick to respond to our needs. We requested and were granted a late checkout, although it wasnt necessary as we departed early. The location seems centralized, however we spent our evenings at Pier Park. This is not within walking distance. AC was effecient, however extremely loud. We wanted it to run continuously to help drown out the sound of music but occassionally it would shut off. If the music didnt wake us, the starting up of the unit would. I do intend to chaperone a group in two years, not sure if we will stay here again or not.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our resort on Trip Advisor! During the Spring Break event period we do have a high volume of students and to that end the activities and entertainment during this time are geared to the college age group. We do try to keep the families up and away from the students and noise whenever we are able however it’s not always possible. We’re glad to hear our team members were quick to respond and resolve the trouble you had with the bed and I will make sure we check into the AC in that room, we always appreciate you letting us know if there’s something not working in one of our rooms so we can correct the matter. Again, Spring Break is a special event time period and only lasts about 6 weeks of the year; I hope that you and your family will be able to visit us again during our regular season to enjoy all the great family friendly entertainment we offer at other times of the year.

Kindly,

Nicole S.

Traveled to this hotel for Spring Break with my daughter. The hotel notified us in advance that this was going to be a busy place during spring break. The lobby was nice, but the check in time was slow. I commend the hotel for the great security. Everyone was checked going in and out of the hotel. The pool and beach were clean, except for the large crowds of teens that were drinking and dumping beer cans on the sand. The rooms were clean, but definitely needed updated. The mattress was the worst that I have ever slept on. The furniture needs replaced. The hotel is in a great location on the strip.

Room Tip: All Rooms are ocean front.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our resort on Trip Advisor! During the Spring Break event period we do have a high volume of Check-Ins at one time that the line does move slow, but the resort team tries to get our valued guests in their rooms and on the beach as quickly as possible. We agreed with you that the rooms needed some updating, and are happy to report that we do have 6 floors already completed with new furniture and hope to have the remaining floors complete this summer. We’re so excited about the new furniture package and hope you’ll be back to visit to see all the great changes we’re making!

Overall great value. Kids eat free with one paying adult. Fun kids activities no charge. Rooms very updated, clean and well air conditioned. All rooms look over pool and beach. Good location on Front Beach strip. Parking across street no big deal. Service one night in dining room took way too long-think it was our particular waitress and not restaurant. Heated pool and two hot tubs great and large and aqualand fun for younger kids. Will go again!

Perfect for a weekend trip. Booked a higher floor room and was right on the beach with magnificent sunsets and Dolphins playing. Requested a late check out, was easily accomodated. Very helpful and pleasnt Front Desk Staff.
Sunset lounge was great - the drinks and service were good [no watered down stuff - even the free coupon drinks were good!]. Good, live music created the right atmosphere.
No more condos for me - this was far better!

Room Tip: The higher the better. On the Beach nothing matters more than the view!

I have never been treated by staff as ghastly as I was treated here. They we're very offending and rude. Do not stay here of you want to have a good time, if you are a family looking for quiet time, by all means, have at it.
