I did not like the property because the walls seemed to be paper thin. The first night we had to listen to crying babies. The second night someone else moved in that was playing loud music and using a lot of profanity. The first night we didn’t complain because who wants to complain about babies. Second night we tried to hold our peace but it got so bad my 15 year old daughter wanted to knock on there door and I told her that wasn’t a good idea that we would call the front desk and that was about 3 in the morning. For about 30 minutes after calling front desk they got louder, I think they were mad about the complaint. Then things got quiet. But at close to $500.00 for the two nights I felt I should have been compensated because it was not fun. It’s not like it’s a 5 star hotel from the beginning and at that price I expected more. The only good point about hotel is the view of the beach, it was spectacular.
