                I liked the hotel because it was on the beach; the restaurants were nice but I was not happy with the room and the hallways were extremely hot

                Hallways were hot and rooms were too small

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                The beach is beautiful. The staff was very friendly and the hotel rooms were clean and comfortable.

                The hotel had noisey guests in the hall in the middle of the night up until 2:30am. Weddings galore. The breakfast buffet food was terrible; Bongos was very slow; we ate many of our meals at a diner next door.

                Right on the beach; hotel pool was adequate.

                Room was unsatisfactory; comparing it to other hotels, it needs to upgrade its standards; would not recommend this to hotel to others;

              • Older travelers

                The rooms and some other facilityes could need some oppdate. It is an old hotel and it shows, espessially in the bathrooms.

                Wonderful experience!!! Excellent staff - well maintained and very clean. Location is amazing. Beautiful beach - lots of shells. :-). Loved the live entertainment at the beach bar, and the Spinner Restaurant had the best sunset view ever!!!

                Loved everything!!

                super warm pool,very good breakfast,staff kept all areas of the resort very clean

                Our check out time was extended to 12 at no charge. Our flight was at 10 pm from tampa. We would have had to pay an additional charge to have a later checkout. We felt it could have been extended until around 4, without any extra charges. We ended a wonderful vacation by sitting in the airport for 8 hours. We had spend 7 nights and more than $1800 at your resort and felt this could have been taken into consideration.

                the staff there was friendly

                the cheesy "free shooters" promo's, ads plastered everywhere in the elevator, etc.

                The rooms are big and clean. It contains a refridgerator and microwave and every room has a small balcony. They have a nice beachbar. The beach is also beautifull...

                Without a car, this hotel is a bit out of the commercial zone. They serve breakfast (all you van eat) but it is not included..

              • Single
                6.6

                Nice breakfasts and revolving bar upstairs.

                A bit old and old-style, needs renovation.

                Very friendly and welcoming staff

                Breakfast buffet cheap but not very exciting

                Beachfront location.

                Advertised as rotating restaurant at the top. Very disappointed that was not the case. Rooms and decor of hotel was outdated, room rates on the weekends did not reflect the high price paid. Hotel info. Stated every room has a view... Except the one we stayed in....a 2nd floor view of the parking lot. Info. Also stated could be intended for 4 people to stay.........no way...too small.

                Location is terrific. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

                Pretty noisy place late at night, particularly during weddings.

                Good staff, clean rooms, good location. Decent beachfront bar/grill.

                Room was right by elevator so very noisy all night long, had to keep bathroom light / fan running all night to try to drown out sounds of voices and doors slamming all night in the hall. Would stay again but bring earplugs the next time and request a room far from elevator. Alo one elevator was not working for entire stay so everybody had to wait for the only remaining elevator, leading to long lines and waits for elevator access.

                The entire staff over a weeks time was imediately responsive to any wants or needs. They went extreemly over above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay an uplifting rejueivinating expeirence, especially in planing my husbands B-day I nearly forgot.We were abel to celebrate by sunset and candle light right on the beach. My husband likes to go out into the town and explore, but He stayed at the hotel the first 4 days. That says something!!!!!!!!!

                The music from the bar was to loud for after 11:00pm

                The ocean view with spectacular sunset, the balcony,free parking, and no resort fee. We will definitely return here for future getaways!
