This property misrepresented itself from the moment we got there! I called ahead and was told I would be in the rooms on the beach side and I was put in the hotel across the street, I could have gotten a hotel on the other side of the street much cheaper to walk a block to get to it!!! NO ROOM SERVICE the entire trip! Complained got nothing! Beach chairs etc are only available until 7 and staff said they would physically remove them from you! They said View of the water I got the air conditioner on the roof! Then at check out the cleaning staff stole my cooler from my room BEFORE check out time. I was told the too bad...sorry!!!! ABSOLETLY HORRIBLE PLACE! Staff only knows how to say sorry,,,It wasnt me...

The staff was great and the lobby, bar and pool were clean. The room was disappointing. The air conditioning blew right the bed and the room smelled damp. And you can't get anything to eat on the premises except fast food and sandwiches.

Pool and beach attendants were very friendly and helpful. Located right on the beach was wonderful for a early morning run. Close to restaurants and bars. Easily walkable.

Room service was slow. Second day we didn't receive service and third day by 5:00 PM we still hadn't received room service. Talked to manager and room was cleaned immediately, next day room service arrived by 9:00. Management corrected issue quickly.
