Very good 8.4 From 1,798 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Family trip with our 9 and 6 year old daughters. We stayed in the walk out garden view room, steps away from the pool. Contained resort, could let the kids explore. Everything you need, close by. Walked most places, drove to big attractions which apparently, it only takes 20 minutes wherever you go! Great location.... and great place to stay. Thank you!

Convenient location , great staff
We were upgraded to a tower room overlooking the bay! Just beautiful! Very good staff and very helpful in all areas. We will stay her again on our next vist. Also, the grounds are BEAUTIFUL!

Fair 4.0
The hotel itself is nice however the rooms are extremely dated, not very clean and cleaning service never showed up. Someone mentioned it's a 3 star hotel with 5 star pricing and that is 100% accurate

Very good 8.0
Room 352 in tower smelled strongly of mildew. There was no maid until we requested a “freshening” of the room...(towels, coffee) at 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Coffee maker tray with the device and condiments was where it ought to be in the kitchenette with one electrical outlet anywhere to use but for behind microwave which meant pulling device off tray and sitting on edge of counter in front of microwave precariously so that it could be plugged in. Seems like an accident looking for a place to happen and disfunctional at best. Late in night and in wee hours of the morning, young employees took their break it would seem underneath the tower balconies between garage and tower where they talked loudly and required the sliding glass door to be closed. Even with it closed you could hear them talking. I suggest that the employees be required to either be respectfully quiet or go out by the bay to get their emotions and vigor out and not in proximity to the quests. Otherwise, all good. Thank you.

Good 6.0
The stay was ok. It was nice having beach access. The hotel felt dated. The position of the chair in the room was right next to the air conditioning unit so it felt damp the entire stay. The carpet in the room was lifted in some areas. There is no vent in the bathroom so it does get very stuffy. Lastly, a pair of women’s underwear was found under the sink in the bathroom but not on the floor but on the pipes. There are some fees they don’t mention on the site. There is a 27-35 dollar fee for parking/valet parking and a $100 incident fee that luckily does get reimbursed after 5-8days.
