I did not appreciate the service guy coming at me with an attitude when I was trying to explain why my kids were in the 21 and up area like other kids were. He was rude to my kids and to me. I also was mislead on beach view because it was more a partial beach view if any being on the 3rd floor and chairs facing the building. The cable tv was out of date and not easily accessible for children nor did the property offer any family events. The water pressure was low and the sand from the ocean did not drain when the kids or I showered.

Most everything was very nice but the safe in my room(414) would not work and the thermostat on the wall for the AC was hanging Other than that, we had adjoining rooms which worked out great for my family and we had a great stay.

I liked the pool open late hours so you can still enjoy the swimming after hour.... nice hotel overall... Disappointed...i stayed on the first floor room 122, the bathroom has no ventilation, no fan, so I had to keep the door open to use it otherwise it's very smell and the mirror was blurred due to the steam from hot shower... I told the housekeeping , she was very nice to give me the air fresher, but it's still smell...she told me tried to open the window, but it did not work and since the room was facing the parking lot.... i assumed it's not safe to open anyway... i went to front desk, i complained and they said sorry, all room were booked. they could not exchange me to different room....not worth for $179 per night plus tax and parking... turned out to $447 for 2 nights.

In my reservation it said free parking and I got charged ! Elevators weren’t working so well . Cold room ! Sugar packets with coffee maker we’re really hard seem they don’t check them . No continental breakfast or coffee . Just seems that a place like this would have more accommodations for families. I stayed at la Quinta and got more for the price! Here it’s all about the Benjamin’s!! Won’t stay at Hilton anymore!
