  • Couple

    It was really a nice and secure place and very family oriented. The breakfast was amazing and the hotel was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. There is a bunch to do without even leaving the hotel.

  • Family with children

    We loved the free popcorn & ice cream for our kids. They really enjoyed that. We also loved the close proiximity to the beach. We stayed in the Family Suite, it was perfect for our family. We also took advantage of the free movie daily. That is a great idea. We will definitely be coming back so our kids can take part in the Little Buccaneers.

  • Group of friends

    The number 1 attribute is the lovely beach. The sand and the location rock. This is truly a great family spot. There is so much for the kids to do here. Even for the 1 day that I was there. Free movies, free popcorn and freer ice cream was lovely pluses. The size of the room was quite large and comfortable. The bathroom, however was a little tight and dated.

  • Family with children

    that everything was right at the hotel. we didnt have to leave at all.

  • Family with children

    The hotel had so many things for the kids to do and allowed me to relax. Loved the breakfast buffet...even satisfied the picky eater 8 year old with me.

  • Couple

    Nothing, they were mean and not polite.

    Tyhe beds were soft.

  • Older travelers

    Location, although the surrounding hotels blocked a lot of the view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We liked the popcorn and ice cream in the afternoons. :) We also liked the free movie rentals.

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly front desk staff. The cabs available on New Years Eve were very convenient and cheap-thanks.

    A table on the balcony to set drinks on would have been nice. I had to set mine on the ground and bend over to get it every time I wanted a drink.

  • Older travelers

    It was on the beach.

    The room was too expensive for what it was. It smelled of mildew. The security lock on the sliding door did NOT work. We stayed 3 nights and it was over $1000.00. Simply rediculous. The housekeeper person knock on the door 15 times in 30 minutes. And we had to go back down stairs l three days to have new keys made because everyday after housekeeping left, our keys wouldn't work.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly staff, excellent gulf view from 241, large pool, very nice lobby and entrance, great housekeeping service, and adequate parking.

    Balcony chairs were to short, had to view beach between rails.

  • Family with children

    I did not particularly like the room layout with the large windows to the indoor area. It was rather loud in the room and no open patio to air dry towels. I didn't think to ask if we would have some type of porch area.

  • Family with children

    The hotel is right on the beach. I loved that aspect of the trip.

    The rooms were outdated. We got a kids suite and there was rust all over the bathroom floors and mildew/mold on the side of the bunk beds. The curtains in the room were also very dirty. There appeared to be old blood or perhaps chocolate on the drapes.

  • Family with children

    My family and I really enjoyed ourselves everything was pleasing and relaxing.I will stay here again!!!!!!

  • Couple

    The location was great. Facility was nice and clean. A lot of activities for the kids.

    Food at the onsite restaurant was expensive

  • Family with children

    The entire staff was so friendly and provided assistance when needed. I had 3 teenagers with me for Spring Break and I loved the fact that there was a security guard on duty all day. Enjoyed the free popcorn and ice cream daily and the free movie rentals the hotel provided. I really had no complaints. The hotel was in walkin distance to a lot of off site entertainment and restaurants. The kids loved the idea we were on the beach and they weren't ready to leave. I will definitely stay here again.
