Room is spacious, clean, and comfortable. Great view of the ocean. Staff at check-in and at the bar were so friendly and welcoming. Location is ideal. Quick walk to mall and restaurants, and right across the street from the beach.

It was supposed to be a romantic night with my wife, we get there and the front desk lady looks and looks on the computer... excuse's her self go on the back and returned... I thought it was weird but she gave us the key and we went to "our room". We get there and it wasn't the room i paid for, we were supposed to have an ocean view preferred room and we got a back room with city view, i go back down there to complaint, the lady said she didn't have the room we booked and was going to give us a "better" room ... ( this was like an half hour already since we got there) We go up again with our stuff to the "better" room and not surprisingly at this time the room was even worse. I paid almost $500 for one night and had to deal with all of this. We went back down and asked for a manager, this lady comes out and basically said, look, your room isn't available, you either take what we have or you don't have to stay! lol...i was so mad and my wife just said, lets' get out of here. thankfully we live about 40 minutes from the hotel and we left. i will never in my life stay in this place and will tell everyone i can about them. horrible customer service, they overbook on purpose so people dont have a choice. They ruined my valentine night.
