Family trip with our youngest daughter before going off to college. We had a great time. The hotel and staff were very nice and helpful. Easy access to the beach. The hotel provided 2 complimentary beach chairs. Cudos also to the beach staff, Raphael, he was very nice and helpful as well.

We had a good stay, the view is what makes up the stars other then that that everything was as expected nothing just jumped out as excellent. Probably could of been a 4 but the price of parking is 34plus tax a night which is ridiculous when we are already paying to stay at hotel...the worse part is the 25dollar MANDATORY daily fee per front desk..which includes 2beachtowels, 2chairs and 2waters..that fee needs to be dropped as it is crazy we are forced to pay this when for one we dont ONLY come here to sit on the beach every day so we are paying this money every day mostly for no reason..I always have my own beach towels and drinks and if I want a chair I will purchase 15-20 for that day. That was a major rip off which makes me not want to return so imagine u stay a wk what that totals up to for daily plus parking.

Older building with dirt/dust/mold. I was able to switch rooms, but had similar issues. Staff were great and accommodating throughout my stay. I would recommend checking it out after all of the renovations are complete.

Amazing 5 nights!!! Thank You Sonesta

Upon arrival we were informed they were sold out and they did not have the room I had reserved. I was pretty upset because it was my 40th bday weekend. But the next morning they moved us and upgraded us to a JR Suite. The room had an amazing view!!!! The room had all the amenities you need. A beautiful white decor and clean room!!! Hubby ordered breakfast room service and they even had a cake with a candle for me!! I was so surprised and the food was delicious!!!! But do keep in mind of the daily resort fee ($24 + tax)/ daily valet parking fee ($34 + tax) and service fee (18%) when buy drinks/food from the pool/restaurant. It is a bit much but that is to be expected since it is a beach front hotel. But overall our experience was perfect!!! The staff was wonderful and very friendly. The location cannot be beat! Walk across the street and your on the beach. Great shops, bars, restaurants, all within walking distance. Cannot wait to go back!!!
