The hotel was extremely nice. We got a great deal using an online discount site. My guess it's for that reason that we got a room on the 1st floor without a balcony or view (other than a bush and parking lot). That was ok though because we paid a lot less than the going rate. The pool was very nice and had a hot tub and swim up bar. Also a sauna. I'm glad the weather cooperated for us that afternoon! Right across the street is a nice strip of beach. The Rainforest cafe is next door too. We were surprised when offered to sign up for the free shuttle to the cruise port the next morning. I didn't see that mentioned on the website so it was a nice bonus to not have to pay for a cab. As others have said, the staff were all extremely polite and friendly. Even though I asked for a room with a view or a balcony and got neither, I just couldn't get mad. The guys at the front entrance (bellhops I believe) made a great first impression with their eagerness to help and a nice hello and goodbye every time we left. Seems like this hotel would work well for just about every situation whether family, couples or business. I imagine it will be even nicer when the renovations are completed.
