Alden Suites A Beachfront Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Cabana Bar at the Alden is the best on the Beach. Chris and David are so welcoming and make everyone feel like family. And there is no better place to watch the sunset. I will definitely be back... A LOT! Thank you!
I love visiting this place. I always feel like a local when I come and Chris and David rock the outside bar. Their ability to transfer a genuine feeling of compassion and understanding is bar none. By far the best bartenders. There is something awesome about being treated like a human being when you are on vacation! I love this place and will continue to visit.
This was our family's first visit to St. Pete Beach in a long time, and this time we opted for the Alden over the Tradewinds or Sirata that seemed more expensive. We knew we'd be sacrificing amenities but thought we'd give it a shot since we didn't want to pay for parking/resort fee. Initially we were greeted by Noel who was very pleasant, professional, and a great kid who made us feel welcomed to the hotel. Lobby was well furnished, and we expected to get the same result in our room but we were wrong. We were in a nice room over the courtyard, but the description of the room stated "pool view". Side view of pool maybe, but it wasn't for us so we went back to the front desk to see what could be done. Stephen was the manager and he took over to assist us in the issues we had with the room. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, and seemed to genuinely care about our dissatisfaction. We settled on a small upgrade fee to the gulf side, and for the price seemed reasonable. The gulf side rooms are much better so upgrade your view whenever possible. Our Housekeeper was very nice, and despite a language barrier did just fine cleaning and giving us privacy if we desired. A- grade on staff. The pools were fine, not great. The grill deck was a nice feature, along with tennis and ping pong all of which are free to use. Ice machines and bathroom amenities however are subpar. Very dirty, hardly ever cleaned, and lack of attention was noticed. Grounds are nice but no one seemed to care after 3 pm if trash cans were overflowing. C + grade on grounds and exterior amenities. The food truck had decent food, not great, but had reasonable prices for what it served. The bar was really the brightest light on this property, and the staff made it shine. Chris and David were great bartenders that make super strong drinks, were full of energy, and made great conversation throughout our time. Jenn was the other bartender that was even better and more welcoming than the other two guys. She seemed to always remember our drinks, strike up a conversation, and made the whole sunset bar experience that much better for us. Very nice girl that works hard despite working alone. A+ bar staff. Overall I would recommend this hotel, but a few small details need to be cleaned up and it would truly spectacular.
Mike, Chris & Noel, the front desk guys, were the BEST! They were sincere, friendly, accommodating and took extra care to ensure our stay was everything we hoped. I will definitely stay again. Some rooms are recently updated and very nice. Not the most luxurious accommodations but everything was clean and comfortable & fit the price and season. Even though I've stayed at more luxurious places, this was one of the best experiences with check in and check out, especially with Mike. They make you feel truly welcome at Alden Suites! And don't miss out on Jimmy B's beach bar with live music - it's only two hotels away on the same side along the beach. Fun hangout afternoons and eves!
Room- very good, spacious.housekeeping-all over the place.Pool area-very nice.Cabana Bar, Chris, Dave, Jen.......does it matter which one? All three pleasant, hard working, and professional.Front desk? Hmmm? For the rate they could be more accommodating. Not all but regular guest should be at LEAST treated equal to " bus guest ".Enjoy coffee, water, and fruit.Thanks.
