    Birthday Get-away

    Outside view beautiful looking over the water. Especially loved that breakfast was free. Excellent choices on the menu for breakfast and dinner. Dinner on your own but not too expensive. Both meals delicious! Highly recommend to family and friends.

  • 8.0.Very good

    A good getaway

    Overall, it is enjoyable. My front desk gentleman that checked me wasn't too pleasant and didn't make me feel very welcome. Other then that the room was clean, the site was very well kept, and the experience was positive.

    Good time!

    I was there for a wedding, the view was great! Housekeeping was amazing, the young lady at the front desk not so frendly. On the check-out day I was told, I could not get a one hour late check-out....ok, no problem. Could I get 15 or 30 min? "No I'm sorry" but the smerk/look on her face. We were loading up wedding stuff and would have been fine on time but the restaurant took almost two hours just for breakfast.

    Get a outdoor pool.

    The Hotel could really use an outdoor pool. The jellyfish in the bay is a real issue. If the hotel had a big outdoor pool the stay would have been over the top. My overall experience was exceptional.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I thought I put in for a balcony with a front view but, it was for a regular room. I try to get them to change it but, they couldn’t change it because I book through expedia. This is my first time at this hotel. I am a senior citizen. I was way down at the end of the hall.
