I would highly recommend this hotel! The staff was friendly and the property was clean. The rooms are great and have everything you could possibly need! We saved a lot of money by having a full kitchen and it was so convenient having a washer and dryer. They have multiple pools including a kiddie pool for toddlers. I also love that the restaurant on the property is poolside. My favorite part though was the beach access. We will definitely be staying there again!

Disappointed beyond words

Pros: not much
Cons: 1983 called, they want their curtains, mattresses and furniture back.
Lets start with the fact this facility doesnt have air conditioning. I never thought to ask when I booked if they had air conditioning. It was nearly 90 degrees each day so the room temperature hovered around 82-85. As a result, we had to leave windows open all day, every day. There were several problems that resulted from the open windows. The first would be that at 5:30 am every day, the light would wake you up. Additionally, it must have been landscapers week because it sounded like a construction zone every day….chain saws, leaf blowers, back up beepers on worker vehicles. As a result, there was no time when you could relax in the room. Also, we had bugs in our room the whole week. Mainly ants, but who wants to spend a week in a hot sweaty, loud, bug infested room? Not us. Lastly, when we arrived home after 9 hours of travel, we had a voice message on our cell phone stating that we owed an additional $119 for resort fees? Wow! I'm not sure what is more egregious…..the fee or the fact they call this place a resort.
