    This was our 3rd time staying here. We loved it previously. Ill start with the Pros: location, friendly & accommodating staff., great outdoor bar with great food. Con: The constant smell of people smoking marijuana in the hotel. Not a good atmosphere for my children. It wasnt once or twice or just a quick breeze, it was all week long and so heavy that we had to buy air freshners at publix to put in front of our air conditioner. We will not be returning for another visit and will have to find a new place to stay that is more appropriate for families.

    Amazing time!

    We came from Orlando. It was our first time staying here and we absolutely loved it! I read a lot of reviews and regardless of a couple bad seeds, the resort is as awesome as it claims to be! Yeah it has some amazing 80s or 90s decor but it’s so great! The pool was perfect. The staff all across the board were all really friendly and helpful. The grounds are nice. They are right on the beach so you don’t have to walk far to jump in the ocean. There’s a cool bar near the pool, so what more could you ask for? Yeah I guess I could pay $100 more a night to stay down the strip at a fancy modern resort and pay a ridiculous resort fee but why would I when this place offers all the same amenities? The only negative was that the parasail people out front kept putting up these boards across the beach entrance that you had to hurdle to get onto the beach which I guess they were trying to keep the sand out? But a little dangerous in my opinion for the older folks. Just also make sure you know about the $10/day parking fee . Other than that, I have no real complaints. My two day florida staycation was the best! Thank you!

    Beware!!!!

    Upon checking in the staff offered an upgrade but promised the rate would not change. Not only did the rate change but the credit card was authorized twice! Unfortunately we were not able to use the upgraded room patio next to the pool because other guests would congregate around it and smoke. We are not smokers so we had to skip using it. The rooms were subpar and housekeeping was almost non existent. We had stayed before in 2015 but it has really went down hill since. Upon approaching staff on checkout about these issues I was brushed off and basically told to hit the road. I did and I will keep going next time! Stay Away there are much better choices!

    Came on a whim

    This was our 4th or 5th visit to this hotel. When we went to check in, we found out our reservations were canceled by the booking company we booked thru due to COVID. Joe (Front Desk) was amazing. He informed my mom to talk to his manager to see about a discount due to NOT receiving a cancellation email from booking company. The manager was wonderful and gave a discount. Only down falls were too many people drinking and smoking in the pool itself and housekeeping didn’t come in to bring clean towels or make beds. (Understandable due to COVID and trying to get staff back). We will definitely be going back again soon.
