Booked the Captain's Suite for 4 nights, mostly for the size of the balcony, which is FANTASTIC for the expansive view of the ocean. There was care taken with the decor and bathroom (jacuzzi tub, 2 shower heads). The odd all-in-one soap dispenser in the tub was odd, but we always travel with our own stuff anyway so it was not a big deal for us. The little "kitchen" was an excellent addition to the room. The bed was a bit uncomfortable, hard, and the sleeper sofa mattress had seen better days. Still, this was not enough to detract from our enjoyment of this room.
The southern exposure was wonderful, as it enabled us to open all windows and the door at all times, we didn't use the A/C at all.
All staff we encountered was friendly and helpful. The outside pool was sparkling. The deck with lounges and chairs fronting the boardwalk gave more outside options.
We wanted to stay an extra day, and choose the Navigator Suite for the southern exposure. It was very large and nice, but we were spoiled by the view from the Captain's Suite.
Looked into an oceanfront suite on the way out of the hotel and it seems like the bed area (far from the ocean end of the room) would be hot, even with the A/C. But the living room area was lovely.
All in all, I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat, and stay in the Captain's Suite!
