The property itself could use some updating. But, overall we would return because the location and the pool/beach access is great!

The room we stayed in was in disrepair, worse than an efficiency but cost significantly more. The window in our sliding glass door was literally falling out. Maintenance cam to fix it the first night but it recurred the next night. Rained all over my daughters bed. Room was not clean at all upon our arrival.

Thank you very much for your review and recent stay with us. We are so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your guest room and that an issue with your sliding glass door caused water to enter into your room. I think I was able to locate your guest room, but will also be in contact with our front desk and maintenance staff to confirm the room number with a sliding glass door issue. We appreciate you letting us know so that we can take appropriate steps to correct the problem and also find out who cleared the guest room for occupancy when it was in "disrepair" and not as clean as it should have been.

The property is dated but our room was clean and the hotel is right on the beach. That was the most important thing to us! The staff was very friendly and accomodating.
