HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 June 2016

Having stayed at a number of places in Wildwood, N. Wildwood, and Wildwood Crest, this is hands down, no exceptions, the very best place to stay if you are as finicky about cleanliness and a pleasant stay as we are. Everything looks and smells clean. The pool area, sun deck, and pool itself are immaculately kept. The halls, the stairs,...

We love the Armada. We stay at least twice a summer, In May and in September. The place is always clean, the staff is awesome and every year they upgrade something. It's right on the beach, which by the way is the best beach. We won't stay anywhere else.

Only had one problem, over the winter the showhead clogged. I told the maintenance man and I brand new one was installed while we were out shopping. I wish my husband could get my "Honey-Do" list items handled so efficiently!!

We had a wonderful weekend. The owners and all staff are a pleasure. The entire place is spotless and always improved. I don't want to say too many positive things about it because I'm afraid there won't be any vacancy when I want to visit. We've stayed here for many years and love it. I did not have great wifi....

Love the Armada. My family has been going there many years. My children grew up going to the Armada. Our home away from home. Very family oriented and well maintained. Every year there is always something new added.

We stayed here in August for a long weekend. We had such a wonderful stay. While teh rooms are a bit dated, it really didn't matter too much since we stayed so busy. Our boys loved the pool. I loved that there was a full kitchen! It was very convenient being beach-front. We spent two days at the beach and...
