DEFINITELY NOT even close to 3 stars! Our room wasn't ready until 5:30. Once we got in our room, the bathroom was very old with patches on the wall and ceiling. Very outdated. We will not be going back.

We stayed here in February. We were supposed to have a king size bed but were informed that we should have booked thru the hotel and not this site. They said there weren't any king sized beds available. Also asked for the military discount but again, since we didn't book thru the hotel directly, we were denied that discount. The...

Currently staying here and I never write reviews but it is so bad I felt like I had too... First we arrived late and they didn't have our room we reserved so instead of a queen bed we received 2 full sized. Not the biggest deal if it would have stopped there. One of the beds had sheets covered in...

The location and views are great and the beach access is wonderful. The indoor-outdoor swimming pool is fantastic and the staff was very friendly. But the building is well used and it shows. There was only one elevator working for the entire week we stayed and the room HVAC equipment was noisy and blew directly across the bed. In short,...
