Up to date hotel with clean room. BUT... the biggest pool and the only one with a swim up bar is ICE cold. Kids pool was heated so if you wanted to use the pool, you can swim with the kids or use the hot tub The beautiful chairs by the beach are for rent. 40/day for 2 chairs. If you bring your own, you will sit behind their chairs regardless if they are being rented or not. If you need to park, add a 10/night fee Added 20/night hotel fee Elevator alarms were going off and were very sketchy - kept jolting Would NOT recommend for this price

I loved your staff that offered the best customer service possible. Were able to let us check in early and take advantages of the property had to offer. Great beach access with beach chairs and umbrellas. Nice choices for lunch. Fun things...corn hole, putting practice, food truck. etc. etc. Super clean to top it off! Nice rooms!

The rooms with a Gulf view are nice. Rooms were pleasant. The beach area is very nice. The property is a bit grubby and worn down around the edges.

Thin walls made it very noisy from the heat/ac machines to the other room occupants. Which takes away the “relaxation” part of the resort.
