Nice resort... clean rooms with great amenities! The beach was gorgeous... staff was all very nice and helpful. It was very quiet... we didn't eat there but there was a nice eating area. We took advantage of the bar outside and the drinks were pretty good... the pool was fantastic. Would go again!

When we got there our room was on the 1st floor in the back corner with no veiw. We were very disappointed with our booking but we love the hotel and have...

Thank you for your review! I am sorry that you were mislead by cancelon in regards to the room category you would be receiving. I can completely understand being frustrated and disappointed by this.

We happened to be walking by and grabbed lunch here. Expecting to pay extra we were pleasantly surprised. The portions were perfect for us. Quick Service. Friendly service.

Place seems to have been recently remolded, and rooms were nicely decorated. We booked a "non view" room and ended up upgrading once we got there- however, we were only staying 1 night, I thought they might do a complementary upgrade or a discount on the upgrade but they didn't. We ended up paying the same rate that was online....

Thank you for your comprehensive review! I am glad that you generally enjoyed your stay, but also appreciate that you took the time to point out some of the negatives you experienced. I am unsure as to why the front desk agent gave you an indication that she could upgrade you at a discounted price, since our front desk agents...

2nd time staying for a week however this time it's way to noisy on the 1st floor. Contacted front desk and they said a call was going to be made. Now 2nd night and same issue, kids wresting on the 2nd floor. Called down to front desk and said I would need to wait until the morning. Ugh!

Thank you for your review and for being a repeat guest. I am very disappointed to hear that you found the property to be noisy, and even more disappointed in the reaction of our staff.

This is our second year coming here for Spring Break. We have 4 families that usually travel together. Being in the hotel business, I can always find things wrong, however the rights far outweigh them. It is always nice to see a lot of the same staff. Randy and Armand are always courteous and friendly.

The room didn't have a view but was convenient to the beach. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar had very good food and drinks. I would go back. Next to a public beach but security guard kept the public out of the hotel parking.
