Great location, activities including free bike and beach rentals
Outdated and needs some upkeep in areas which they appear to be in the process of doing
I was waiting for our room to be ready because my girlfriend and I were attending a wedding in the area. The rehearsal dinner was at the hotel and the majority of people were also staying there so I wanted to be close because I was involved in the wedding. While we waited for our room to be ready we had three separate hotel employees ask us over an hour and a half if we were guests of the hotel. One employee required my name and one asked for our room number as proof. My girlfriend happened to be the only black person in the lobby. While we were asked 3 times if we were guests, not one other person in the lobby was asked a single question. After the first person asked if I was a guest and then asked for my name to confirm, she came back and said there were two people with that name so she wanted to check in with me. This was insulting because she didn't first approach me to sort out two bookings with the same name... She approach to ask if we were guests. After three people had asked us if we were guests while simply waiting for our room I assumed it would be over when we got to our room. I was wrong. We had a hotel employee come to our room in the hour and a half we had to get ready for our friends rehearsal dinner to ask me to confirm my email. He informed me that he wanted to make sure the room we were given was correct. The room I booked could have been upgraded to a suit for around $20... I am not sure what room the other person had booked that had my same name, but from the feel of it I can assume they were ready to move me to a room that was not as nice. Fortunately I was in the correct room... Because I paid for that room. In short, this hotels staff is not all bad. Some people were lovely. However multiple staff members seem racist. They may not fully mean it, but it is 100% there as a feeling. I can ignore being rude to me as a person.
The rooms were very clean and nice. The staff was very helpful.
The main court yard area that faces the ocean was muddy and not great for kids as I had hoped. There wasn't much grass or area to play. Getting to the beach was a little hard for me and the kids with all the stairs. I thought it would be flush with the ground level, not upstairs.
Location was perfect
Construction and Noise
The grounds are beautiful and the ocean view is amazing. The staff was very warm and friendly!
Only smoking area is in the front ( gazebo) by the street. Several homeless people going through the trash and asking for cigarettes.
