3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

This was my second week long stay at the property (had it been the first, it certainly would have been the last).
Upon entering our room we were met with a sour milk scent that seemed to be coming from the refrigerator. The fridge was cleaned as best as we could manage, but had to be removed from the room and defrosted. The fridge was then found not fully functional and had to be replaced a day later.

We were given a first floor room, but the rear door was unable to open as it had a broken lock and the door itself had separated from the frame. Also, the front door was sticking and near impossible to open from the inside. This was mentioned to the front desk, but was not addressed until the issue was brought up a second time. The maintenance crew was fantastic when dispatched, and actually had to remove the door from frame completely to repair. The team was very apologetic and mentioned that this type of issue should have been handled before a visitor was assigned the room.

As mentioned this was our second stay (and a return favourite of other family members), however I will not automatically be returning next year. I feel that a beac vacation is short enough without having to spend precious time dealing with rooms that are not fully functional (especially when paying for the use of said room).

arrived at hotel after 15 hour drive to find the rest room had a large amount of mold. There is no fan in the rest room to let steam out causing mold to grow in the corners. approched front desk employe who stated he knows its a problem by his boss will not fix it and could not help place us in a new room. We stayed 7 days and would never return. Bar is in great location and beach is great. But why stay here when there is 100 hotels on the beach who care about your stay..

I am so sorry that you had an experience like this at our facility. Mold can indeed be a challenge in this area with the high humidity. It is further a challenge due to many guests who like to leave their balcony doors open allowing the humidity in the rooms. It is unfortunate that it can grow very quickly. I assure you that it will be addressed and corrected in the room in which you stayed. I want every guest to enjoy their visit. I apologize that you were not moved to another room. I would greatly appreciate you calling me so that we may discuss this. Thank you for taking the time to share so that we can make the necessary improvements.
