Gross Room :/

The pictures on their website are definitely deceiving. Everything looks beautiful until you pull up. ProsFor a "cheap hotel" the pools and backyard are nice. They have restaurants and bar overlooking the bay. Its close to everything. ConsDisgusting disgusting roomsssssss!!!!!! As soon as you open the door you get the humid smell! The carpet looks like they have never steam cleaned it! The fan was full of dust(as shown on the picture) Pillow case had a hole on it. Even the shower curtain stunk. Like when you wash something and it didn't dry well. It was just gross. Unfortunately since we booked a non-refundable reservation we couldn't get our money back. I stayed before in hotels were the night was $90 and it was wayyyyyyy better than this hotel. Its overpriced for what you get room wise.

Awful Service

The inside bar and restaurant had the worse service I have ever received in my 54 years of living!!! The Manager on Duty apologized several times but he himself could not rectify the problem with his bartender or servers..... We finally got up and went to another place for dinner... Randy

Friendly staff

Good family hotel, my family and I loved the pools. They are kept very clean. Housekeeping does a great job. The staff at the front desk were awesome when we needed to switch to a kids suite (highly recommend this room if you have children) thank you Jennifer! The bar has some of the best ultimate margaritas. Only thing I don't recommend about this hotel is the restaurant. The food wasn't terrible, but the service was crappy. Long wait and they didn't even bother to apologize. The view from the rooms is beautiful, but the beach isn't one you can swim in. Overall a great experience for my family and I

Little gem

Very friendly helpful staff. Clean rooms with great AC. Maid service was fantastic. There is little to no beach and occasionally a very bad sewage smell from the Bay. There are two pools, both kept exceptionally clean by very attentive staff members . There is a play area for children also. We ate dinner in the Periscope... Food was amazing and large portions. Only negative is hotel is not close to any other restaurants, if you don't have your own vehicle. We used Uber numerous times and had no issues. I would recommend this gem, if you just want to relax by the pool and enjoy the weather

Fist and Last Stay

The room carpet was filthy, the sink was stopped up, the tub was stopped up, and when you pull the knob turn the water on the whole thing would come out the wall. You had to hold the plate and pull the knob in order to turn the water on. You could not go to the beach at the hotel because it was also filthy and full of seaweed. The pools were nice, the restaurant was nice. The staff was good, but the hotel overall just wasn’t clean.
