A great place to stay

We had a room on the sixth floor. It was very spacious and well appointed. It have us a lovely view of the beach and the sea. Unfortunately it was extremely during the time we were there, so we weren't able to use the balcony much. The beach itself isn't the greatest - the sand is wonderful and the water temp was comfortable, but there was a sharp drop-off once you get into the water, so you have to be quite tall and strong to enjoy bouncing in the waves.

Well positioned hotel is comfortable and spacious

WE enjoyed our stay here as it was right on the beach and close to every other facility we could need. It was a nice touch to have lovely fresh pineapple in the refrigerator ready for our arrival. The room was spacious and clean so what more could you want! it may be a bit dated but the décor was reasonable.

Wonderful stay!

We picked the Whaler because of its location to Whaler's Village. It was our daughter's 21st birthday and we wanted to have choices for restaurants and fun cocktails! It didn't disappoint! We stayed in a fabulous 2 bedroom condo in tower 1 in unit 623 that was super clean and updated. It truly felt like home away from home. The master bed was not super comfy but listening to the ocean waves crashing was perfect for sleeping. The master bath was big and wonderful but the guest bath had a huge step to get in the shower/tub combo which wouldn't work for everyone. The beach shack had plenty of chairs and items to rent. We rented everything we needed for the entire week and it was handy to take everything with us daily. The snorkeling was fabulous at the end of the beach by the Sheraton. The concierge staff was really helpful in getting reservations for us for meals and activities. The only down-side was that there was a lot of construction going on at the Whaler and near-by properties so there was always construction noise. All in all, it was a great week and we look forward to returning!

Pretty mediocre

Not sure about the rest of the rooms but we are in 1014 in Tower 1and pretty disappointing to be honest. We booked this as a 5 star Ocean view suite and it is definitely Ocean view but the main view is of the roof of the building next door, pretty hideous really but if you can somehow ignore that then the ocean looks and sounds very nice. This is why I gave it a 3 star rating. Without that I would likely go with 2. Room is quite dingy, bathroom is very dirty with grunge buildup in all of the corners and smells like urine, bathtub does not drain very well likely contributing to the smell. Kitchen area is ok i guess but is in need of some updating thats for sure. Bed was comfortable which is a plus and sound of the surf is wonderful, sunset is on the other side of building though so another letdown. We have stayed in other condos along this stretch of beach and this one is the least impressive so far. Staff are very nice and tried to get us into another unit but they were about the same For the price we paid for this unit, about $350 per night, it certainly fails to meet expectations. Will not be coming back here.

Extremely dated

If you don't mind furnishings and accomodations from 1975-80, then you will love this place. Oh and mirrored walls all over the unit! This place has a beautiful lobby/entrance and nice beach location, but no other amenities and 1 pool. The 1 bedroom/1bath condo they put us in has a wierd odor, like moth balls and a raw sewer gas smell coming from the bathroom sink. When we asked to be moved, they told us they did not have a lower priced studio but could put us in a nicer 1 bedroom, 2 bath condo for an additional fee -Ha! No thank you! We would not recommend this place at all. There are much nicer resorts on this beach.
