Beds were very hard. Only 1 elevator working and staff did not get out for the guests. They need to have different colored wrist bands for guests. They would not serve my 30 year old daughter a drink at the pool. Who takes their ID to the pool? We went to the restaurant for dinner and it took 2 hours and they weren't even busy. There were cockroaches all over the patio while we were eating our dinner on the patio.

Way overpriced for the quality of the hotel. I didn't utilize many amenities, such as the beach chairs/umbrellas, because literally everything requires an extra cost. Check-in is at 4 p.m., which is fairly late in this area, and when I checked in shortly before 4 I was told the room wouldn't be ready until at least 4:30. I realized once I got in to the room that this is because they allow late check outs (up until 3 p.m.) for an extra cost. This hotel definitely prioritizes making money above everything else. The quality of the rooms were average at best, and because of the tiled floors, you can hear everything in the room above you. It would be a good place for families because of the easy beach access, indoor/outdoor pool, dining onsite, beach lifeguard, and plenty of activities - but again, it's massively overpriced. I would consider returning in the future if the cost of the rooms dropped by half at least. Additionally, the parking lot is tiny and self-parking is available only until the lot is full (which it was), at which point valet parking was required. This is "complimentary" though of course tips are expected. Because of this I felt like my car was fairly inaccessible during my stay.
