Very nice hotel in a perfect location with wonderful staff. We stayed here for six nights in January 2013 and we had a wonderful time. The staff is just superb: each and every one of them very friendly, knowledgeable and eager to please, from the cleaning lady to the breakfast lady to the front desk and the valets. Rooms are very nice and fairly big. The beds are huge with big wooden frames so a little hard to get in and out of if you are having some rheumatic issues. Nice shower, comfortable bathrobes, big sink and large area around it. Pool is nice and warm and the hot tub is big. They provide you with towels to the pool in your room which is a nice gesture. The location of the hotel is also perfect. Along a pathway by the beach with wonderful views of the ocean and within walking distance of the pier, shops and very good restaurants. We also booked a massage through the hotel and that was good also. My husband had a massage in our room and my daughter and I had a massage in the fitness room. That massage room was a little tight but it worked out. The fitness room, by the way, is in the basement of the hotel, off the parking garage. Strange location but good equipment. I only have two minor things: we booked a room with two Queen beds and then paid an extra nightly fee to have our daughter joins us. However, the towels, glasses etc. was all for two people and not three. We had to ask for extras on some days and it would have been nice if they would have thought about that. Also, normally we don't watch a lot of movies in our hotel room but on this trip we were fairly busy during the day and tired at night. The movie channel advertises movies that are still in the theater but that is a little deceptive. The movies they had are probably still playing in little $5 movie theaters but are certainly a few months old. We wanted to watch a certain movie and it would have cost us $17.99 (!) which is more than you would pay to see it in a theater on opening weekend!
