I would definitely not recommend this hotel; it does not even deserve a 2-star rating. We had a top of the line ocean front room, but it was definitely not worth the $400 per night we spent. The tiles in the bathroom and the bath tub were dirty, very clearly had not seen a good cleaning in years. The paint in the room was chipping and had serious rust stains. The furniture might have seen good days 30 years ago, but was falling apart, as I was trying to get my clothes organized, the drawers fell down. You will find Motel 6 to be cleaner and with functional furniture. The food was average, not terribly good but also not terribly bad.
As for the neighboring "resort" The Tamarijn, do not go there. The place needs to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. Food in the italian restaurant was quite awful, we ordered fish which was clearly over the hill but they tried to mask the fishy old taste with a ton of salt, an insult to anybody who knows fish.
