Would definitely recommend for the off season
A nice place. It's a little dated, and could use some repairs and sprucing, but it also has some charm. The cleaning staff could get a little loud at times (I guess it's a cultural difference), and could clean a little better, but I've seen far worse. Front desk staff was exceptional. Don't know if I would stay here in the peak season, as a regular told me the bar area is a mad house.

Great vacation.
The hotel was wonderful. The pool, room and entire facility was clean. The breakfast the last day was outstanding, Tracey was a breath of fresh air with her service. Check in and check out was quick and easy. We were ocean front and it was such a wonderful view.

Poor housekeeping
Filthy bathroom was never cleaned during stay, coffee, creamers/utensils, washrags were not refilled/replaced. Headboard was filthy, had something splattered all over it.

Best beach find
Checking in was efficient, and very friendly. The location was great. The Coconuts bar in the property was just the thing to plop down for a drink. The beds were comfortable. Room clean but everything has not Been updated. The rooms were dated. Would I return , Sure!
