Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Great rooms, great view, great service! I would stay here again! In fact I can't wait to go back! All rooms have a balcony and ocean view. Polynesian show, dive in movies for the kids, what more could you ask for?

Me and my wife stayed at this Holiday Inn resort over Labor Day weekend. We have stayed here before and continue to choose this facility for our lodging needs. Check-in is always a breeze and we are always greeted with a smile and top notch service. The grounds are very well kept and on site security with radio communications insure your stay is free from shenanigans. I call this a one stop paradise because even though you can come and go as you please, with all the top notch amenities, one you check in you really don't need to leave. HIR HAS GOT EVERYTHING COVERED including pool deck movies, pizza, music/entertainment, and even an onsite convenience store that has just about everything. The location is a little older but has been wonderfully renovated with modern design and flat screen TV's, fitness facility, and my fave complimentary COFFEE. We always enjoy our stay here and it is a great value for what ya get. We'll be back guaranteed!! Thanks everyone

Thank you for sharing your experience with us on trip advisor! We’re so glad you and your wife enjoyed your stay with us again this visit. It’s great to hear that our Resort Team – from the Front Desk at check-in to the Security Team around the resort – was able to provide you with superior service; this is something we strive for at our resort. We do provide a variety of activities and amenities around the resort so that our guests do have everything they need right onsite, but we also provide discounts for various restaurants and attractions around town if you should want to venture out – but like you said, you really don’t need to leave! Thank you again for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort; we hope to have you as our guest again soon!

I stayed at this resort for 4 days on a family vacation. Having no kids myself, it was a bit of kid overload for me personally but I was there with my sister in law, my mom and my neice and nephew so I will try to review from the standpoint of a family vacation. The place is great for kids. They have excellent security and altho the armbands that they make the adults wear were a bit bothersome, they make you feel secure. They have security everywhere all the time and they DO NOT let people without the proper armbands inside the resort. We were traveling with a small toddler who is 3 years old and two 13 year old girls. I think both age groups had a great time here. They have a kiddie water playground that kept the 3 year old busy. The playground is well built with safety in mind. The entire thing has a foam padding down so no one can fall and hurt themselves. The gates around the playground are child proof so small children can't open them and get out and escape. That was a plus with a very active 3 yr old boy around. They have nice chairs and rockers for the adults to sit at to watch the kids play. They have a nice big full size pool for older kids and adults. The beach area is nice however, they charge you $50 a day to rent beach chairs and an umbrella. None are supplied by the resort which I did not like! When you are paying $200 a night ($1400 for a week), I would expect that to include a chair on the beach! Another complaint was the fact that before the crack of dawn every morning people would go down to the pool and place a towel on every single chair!!! I noticed one day that I spent most of the day down at the pool that half the time no one EVER used the chairs they had saved! We called and spoke with management about this policy and we were told this was allowed. I was quite upset about this. I think there could be a better policy in place for saving chairs since there clearly is not enough to go around. We resorted to waking up the teenagers early in the mornings to run down and save us a chair! Hey, that's what kids are for right? ;-)

As for food at the resort, it was sorely lacking! I recommend you take advantage of the fridge and microwave and bring in your own food. We at at the breakfast buffet one morning and spent a small fortune. I believe it was $18 a person! We also were too tired to go out one night and myself and my mother went down to the only restaurant on site and over payed for a club sandwich that was not fit to eat. The best meal we had there was the morning we walked across the street to the Waffle House! The snack bar wasn't too bad either. Not great, but not bad.

One note on the rooms themselves is that they are very small! We had a family of 6 and we were in very close quarters! One king size bed and then two sets of bunkbeds all in the same area. Very little space to eat or move about.

I'd like to give kudos to the entertainment staff at this hotel. They were great. They keep the kids entertained all day long with different activities at the pool. Dancing, games, ect. These young kids were great fun. They dress up in different outfits for the smaller kids and you will see them around the hotel all day and night keeping everyone happy. The security staff was awesome as well. Very friendly! I noticed one night there was some trouble down on the beach of some sort and one of the security guys told the others he could not leave a small child he was escorting back to her room. I assume that if a child gets lost, a member of the security staff stays with them until they are able to find their parent. There are also cameras located everywhere on the resort. You def felt secure letting our teenage girls have free run of the resort until late at night. They had a blast swimming late at night and hanging out in the game room.

One word of advice for the dive in movies is get down there early to get yourself a chair. They will put them out immediately following the Polynesian show each night. If you don't get one, you will have a hard time finding one once the movie starts.

Room Tip: Very very tiny rooms!!!! Room service did not come until very late in the day.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us on trip advisor! We’re so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us! We do offer a large variety of activities for younger kids but we also have activities that are suited for all ages such as the Polynesian Fire & Dance Show. It’s great to hear that everyone – from 3 to 13 to the adults – had a great time at our resort. I’m sorry to hear that your experience in our restaurant was less than favorable. I will be sure to share this review with our Resort Team Members as well as the Director of Food & Beverage as this is not the level of excellence we expect. We’re so glad you felt comfortable and secure at our resort and were able to let the teens have some time to explore on their own! Thank you again for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort; we hope to have you as our guest again soon!

We loved this hotel! All of the rooms have a view to the beach. The pool is huge and the kids water park area is awesome. The kids had a great time. The access to the beach is very convenient and has plenty of showers to rinse off the white sand. They have plenty of activities all day. They give watermelon and punch in the afternoon and at night they show a family friendly movie on a big screen outside. This hotel feels like you are on a cruise! The staff is very friendly and they don't insist that you buy alcoholic beverages the way cruises do. The food was great. We loved the fact that kids eat free. This really makes a difference. A dressed up dolphin greets the kids at breakfast time and gives them a balloon. My son loved that. This was the best vacation we've had at a beach resort in the U.S. We highly recommend it.

took my daughter there for graduation present. Were treated like royality from the moment we arrived. Security is everywhere, not anoying, but comforting, rooms are big all gulf front, nice bed linens, clean guest rooms, mattresses are ok, but acceptable. watermelon served at 2 everyday, self serve ice cold water , nice music playing around pool area, dj with pool deck dancing available, nice cafe store with all your needs available, pizza 2.00 a slice, beach is easy access, lounge chairs and umbrellas are worth it but expensive, I actually got a deal. Ready to go back

The staff of this hotel were very friendly and helpful. Lots of activities especially for kids but adults are not forgotten. Lots of kids. Couples may want to look somewhere else. Pool area very nice. Well maintained property. Room nice but not special. We did enjoy our stay.
