We had a beautiful room overlooking the gulf. The perfect way to start the day is in The Palm Room Restaurant is a beautiful way to start the day and has a breakfast buffet with both inside and outside dining available overlooking the water. There was unsurpassed customer service throughout the hotel. I am so glad we checked out Level 11, a new ultra modern rooftop artisan bar and lounge offering hand-crafted cocktails and artisan light fare. At Bongo's, we sipped on mojitos while listening to live music. Dinner at "Spinners," a rooftop revolving bistro with 360-degree views topped off the day for us. Delicious food and drink, outstanding service, and relaxing ambiance. A little pricey, but well worth it.
They have some excellent restaurants at this resort. Over the last couple of years, I've been to three, out of four they have.Bongo's has a very 'beachy', Caribbean aura about it, casual and very pleasant, customers' seating is almost on the beach itself, some nice live music entertainment. The menu offers ... pretty much anything, from the seafood to the traditional meals, mid-priced. For a change (finally, a break from all that shrimp and crab), I ordered my favorite Rueben sandwich - no miss, this time either: rich and delicious, as it should be, sauerkraut is very tasty.Of non-conventional exterior design, the hotel looked pretty busy with customers, even not in the highest season. Rooms are not too large, but nicely furnished. The best two restaurants I visited in the past in this hotel are Spinners on the twelfth floor and Level 11 (yes, on the eleventh, hipster paradise). Just take the elevator.
Nice clean. Hotel on the beach. Staff was terrific especially Maggie at the front desk. Restaurant at the top of the hotel with great views. We did stop up for a cocktail and some appetizers. Both were good. I would recommend this hotel.
Our room was wonderful! They used good linens and bed was very comfortable. We had a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, etc. The room had a private balcony perfect for early morning beach watching. The pool is heated and fabulous and bar area was always hopping. This meant you had to tune out some band noise late at night which is unavoidable. The staff was all about making your stay fantastic. My biggest issue with entire stay was the nasty smelly disgusting carpet in hallways that other reviewers have mentioned. My room was very clean but cleaning staff put a do not disturb on our door when we were still in room when they first knocked. We were also not given more condiments which meant no coffee.
We have stayed here for a few years during the MA April vacation week. All staff are friendly and happy to help with any request. We have stayed in both the gulf front and the side view rooms-both types are terrific. The addition of the new deck bar-restaurant on floor 11 was a great addition. The beach side restaurant and bar are great-wonderful food and drinks, with a great atmosphere. Definitely a place to return to!
