The property is perfect for a family vacation with young kids. My concern is that the elevator’s tend to stay full and you can literally spend 30 minutes waiting to catch one. Also, the breakfast buffet, although reasonably price, is in a tight location with limited staff. All in all, my family and I had a great time. We plan to revisit this location next year!

Everything was wonderful. I thought from my reservation online said breakfast was included Yhis was one of main re asons for choosing them. But they informed me that travelocity would promise something but not deliver. Would say one thing fine print would disagree with promise. Dont know if i will ever trust or use travelocity again. Disapointed with reputation

The room had ample space. Loved the view from my balcony. It was clean and the beds were comfy. However, I was not told that I wouldn't have the same ammenities bc I booked through a third party-travelocity. So we didn't get free breakfast. There were only 4 elevators which took forever. There wasnt a vent in the bathroom. The entrance to load and unload was small and there were too many people checking in at 4pm and the cars were blickingtraffic. People that were not trying to load and check in were upset. They were beeping at us angrily. It was awful. Then the parking deck was 2 blocks away. It was dark. There was feces in the steps, the elevator got stuck. One time the doors were unlocked. Unsafe. There was only one way to get to the beach-always having to go through the pool. Ridiculous.
