    Love the view from my room! All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The pools are very nice and there is one for kids to enjoy and an adult pool only for those of us who want to relax more. Many restaurants to visit and a private beach! What more could you want?

    Beware of bait and swtch

    I don't like hotels that do a bait and switch. I reserved a standard room in the friendly hotel and when I went to check in that I was told they had not made up enough rooms today to satisfy my reservation. So they gave me a choice of staying in an adjoining hotel which is 900 ft away or paying for an upgrade to stay at the friendly. If they didn't make up enough standard rooms it's because of one of three things. 1) poor planning 2) they are trying to jack up the price by getting me to upgrade 3) they are not being truthful about my room being available so that I will upgrade. if they made a mistake by not making up enough rooms in advance for reservations they knew about then they should be upgrading me for free. If I was unwilling to pay for an upgrade then I could come back the next day and move to another room. when I ask about the inconvenience about moving to another room the next day I was told that they gave me a standard room and I had no reason to complain.

    Booking on the last minute, I knew it wouldn't be the best of the hotels, but its okay. It has the best ocean view from the room and from the pools. I expected more food variety, but what I got is flavory, it's good.

    We couldn’t hardly sleep. The walls were to thin. We heard yelling until 4 am. The food was about the same everyday. They put a few new items on the bars. However all the staff were wonderful. The pools were good and the beach was nice.
