This was my second stay at the property, just 2 months apart. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the views from the bay-facing rooms were spectacular. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and shops within walking distance. The street is narrow and there are no sidewalks, so be aware of traffic! I booked the second stay through Travelocity and apparently did not understand the type of room I was booking. I was expecting it to be bay-view like my first stay. The property is very large and there is a section on top of the hill that is not bay-facing, and a long walk from the main building. They tried to put me there, and insisted they had no other rooms. However, when I agreed to pay for an “upgrade,” suddenly a room comparable to my first stay became available. The property was not at all crowded, so the statement about being completely booked didn’t really ring true. My advice is to clarify with the hotel at time of booking that you want a bay-facing room in the main building. The concierge was lovely, as was the staff at the beach bar. Restaurant staff could be more pleasant. We will go back, and will clearly specify the main building next time.

The first thing is i guess we where put by the maid pick up or something. Every morning it seemed about 8 or so they where out there talking really loud to one an other and making lots of noise. Secondly our shower was so slow at draining we had one person take a shower in the morning and the other in the evening. Also we only received one bath towel a day even if 2 was taken we only received one back. It was a very very noisy room for sure from staff members. other than these things we liked the location and the pools and resturants.

I liked that the casino was right on the property as well as multiple restaurants and shops. There were multiple pools and accessibility to the beach was easy.

Unfortunately we had a really bad experience at this resort. The resort was very empty and our rooms were in the back part of resort. They had staff members of the resort staying in the room next to ours drinking and partying late into the night. Very uncomfortable situation. Did not feel safe. Management did not make an effort to resolve the situation.

Great location but the hotel is still recovering. The room was clean but aged. Needs work, the hotel is slow to renovate.

Nice place in a great location. The only reason not to give all 5 stars is because the pool directly in front of the unit was under repair. This seemed almost complete but it didn't seem proper to give it a 5 when it was being upgraded. Everything is onsite at this ideal beachfront location.

Nice hotel in good location

Pros: Hotel was kept up nicely.
Cons: Be more customer oriented in the policies. (see above)
Location: great location with lots to do nearby
My stay was very good, room was very spacious and clean. The resort grounds were spread out but that was not a problem for me. My only negative experience was that I missed my flight coming to the resort which put me one day late arriving, staying 5 nights instead of 6. I had informed Travelocity of my late arrival whom informed the hotel. I requested my bill be adjusted to minus the one night that I had missed but the hotel refused to do so. Also, Travelocity confirmation says check out monday thru friday is noon but hotel insists check out during these days is 10 am. They did let me check out at noon after consulting a manager but made it clear "this time only".
