Hotel is at the most a 3 star rating and that is being VERY generous. Rooms are very outdated, smell horrible and the air conditioner did not work properly - For sure I will not be visiting this hotel again.... NOT GOOD AT ALL

Loved our stay! We booked this super last minute and had less than 24 hours but it was so worth it! Swim up bar was great and right across the street from the beach.

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 The cable tv was out of date and not easily accessible for children nor did the property offer any family events.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.
