We’ve stayed at this hotel once a year for the last several years and have always had a great time but unfortunately, it’s not what it used to be. When you arrive, there is no bell service so no one to help with your luggage.

We’ve stayed at this hotel once a year for the last several years and have always had a great time but unfortunately, it’s not what it used to be. When you arrive, there is no bell service so no one to help with your luggage. When we got to our room, there was dirt on the floor (straw from Easter baskets and Cheerios) and there is no housekeeping unless you request it. Our first day at the pool (Easter Sunday) the pool bar was open but no service - (self service only) and no food service. The following day, even the pool bar was closed and stayed closed until Thursday. To order drinks or food you had to go into the one bar in the hotel that was open. I waited in line for more than 15 mins to order two drinks. When we did decide to sit down and eat inside service was painfully slow. The pool slides are also on “reduced hours” and only open each day from 11-3 even though the pool is open until 10pm. When they opened, kids were lined up around the pool and clapping they were so excited They also ran out of towels each day so if you arrived late or wanted fresh, dry towels in the afternoon, you were out of luck. At checkout valet was an absolute mess and we were told what do you expect, it’s check out time... Everywhere it was evident they were undestaffed and this was openly discussed by current staff. One staff member said “we can’t get people to come to work) which I understand with Covid but my issue is they clearly weren’t limiting their bookings knowing they don’t have the staff to support their guests needs. Last summer we stayed at the Hyatt next door at the height of the pandemic when people were receiving the $600 unemployment subsidy and yet they had enough staff to have bell service, housekeeping came automatically every other day and they had pool service. I’m guessing they limited their occupancy in order to make this happen or for some reason people prefer to work there - not really sure. We need to return in the fall for a soccer tournament and will be staying at the Hyatt but hopeful this hotel will return to what it used to be someday...but we won’t be back until it does. Read less

I sort of don’t want to leave a good review because then more people will be attracted and it will be busier next time I stay. But this hotel is definitely worth it. Clean, excellent customer service, right by the beach, good amenities, everything you could ask for.

Will be back for sure. Wonderful resort in a great location. Great restaurants and beautiful rooms. Close to so many activities. Two pools for a different vibe, one more kid centered with water slides. The views from the room with the oven views were stunning. Great family resort with so much to do in the area.
