The tv was so old that it had the old style closed captioning that would only come on if the sound was muted. Folks, please upgrade for your deaf visitors.

I loved how clean the beach was. I loved how one could rent the blue cabana tents. They saved me from getting sunburned.

my wife and i were just there. great place. we will return. it was well kept and maintained. a great beach. and the area is littered with good restaurants. i cant say enuff good. i did read some reviews about old tv's we had one brand new and one a little out dated. we did not go to watch tv and it was obvious they were aupdating the whole place. so that is just being picky!! as i said we will return!!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a full size fridge

My husband and I decided to have our wedding ceremony during a reunion... We were a very crazy and loud group.. The staff handled us very politely when we got a little out of control. Rooms were clean, tvs worked properly, and pools were crystal clear..The Alden was so accomodating when they learned we were having our ceremony on the premises..they offered a conference room as back up if rained.. There was no rain as the sunset was an abosolutely breathtaking backdrop as we said our vows. I recommend the Alden for a wonderful experience in any beach vacation you might be planning...

It had exactly what I like in a beachfront hotel: Easy beach access. A nice pool (actually 2). A little beach cabana bar with reasonably priced drinks and shade. A CLEAN room with an AC that could make the place nice and cold, and room darkening curtains that could make it nice and dark. I only use the room to sleep and shower, so I didn't care about the view and chose an interior room. There were many rooms that overlooked the beach. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. My only comment: They use an obscure electronic key system. It would be nice to use normal "card keys". The electronic keys they use don't function if they get wet, however they issue them to you on an elastic strap that implies they can be taken in the water.

Room Tip: If you're not going to spend time in the room, don't get the beach view.

My wife & I stayed in the Alden during the weekend of October 4-7th or 2012 and we thoroughly had a great stay. The room had a well functioning A/C,small kitchenette, and comfortable bed. The room was very clean. The staff was very helpful. The beautiful white sand beach is only a few yards away and on the way to the beach is a great bar.

My only critique is the pillows. Too flat for my comfort. I would have preferred better quality pillows,

We booked what Alden told us was a poolside room, $139 each night + taxes. Our room was in the bldg. about a 1/4 of a mile from the beach and on the fifth floor. If you went out on the balcony and leaned over and looked left you could barely see the pool. Room was clean however the TV's were very old and the little 19 inch in the living room area had lost it's color so it was very hard to watch.When the FC person checked us in he "warned us " about the rowdy crowd they had there and apologized to us uo front but was done so AFTER he processed our credit card. There was a large group of Panama Cana Zone reunion people there and quite noisy and their kids very unruly especially if you tried to use the pool with 75 ,5 to 12 year olds everywhere unsupervised by their parents!!

Room Tip: Don't book here unless you go see the room they offer you first !!!

This is a great hotel. It's definitely not 5 star but I would give it 4. Functional, clean and the perfect beach location. Nothing beats the view and walking right out to the beach. The night manager, Beau, is a super guy and knows how to treat guests with respect and gratitude. Kitchen, separate bedroom and living room. Nice patio. We had gulf view room 240. Not sure of the name of the suite, will definitely do it again. Food within walking distance, Skidders and Snapper are right across the street, both excellent restaurants. Bed is comfy.

Room Tip: Gulf view, pay for that great view!
