Facilities were very clean! We really loved our room and our stay here. The only thing we didn't like was the parking situation. Check-in and check-out are a pain but we would still stay here again. We had a great experience!

No housekeeping and no beach chairs. The property surrounding was not kept up well and the inside pool and area looked like a zest pool of infection. No mask rule was enforced by staff

This property is right in the center of everything. It has easy access to parking, clean spacious rooms, an excellent balcony and exceptional staff. From the moment I checked in and was greeted I knew we were going to have an amazing stay. Due to covid house keeping services are not available, but you can always call for fresh linens and take out your trash. I stayed in the deluxe queen ocean front suite which was perfect for 1-4 people to fit. The only down side was the elevator wait could be long which can happen at any hotel. Otherwise we had an excellent vacation and we are already thinking about heading back to this property in the future!

My family loved the water park and the beach access. The hotel was beautiful and our room was spacious. The only concern was trying to pull in to check in and parking.

Overall it was good! Beds were very comfortable. I hated walking so far to the parking garage. And the water pressure in our room was terrible!
