The suites are in good shape but the surrounding and facilities are a bit outdated and the staff can improve a lot. Direct access to the beach and big pool. Not a bunch of activities. Their is a restaurant on site with a pretty decent menu options. Also close by pharmacies and supermarkets.

This place is amazing. Victor and Patricia from the front desk were really nice. The guys from valet parking were also super and provided up with info we needed. The only thing I didn't like was that they never answer the calls and you have to go to front desk if you need anything.

Stayed the first weekend of June 2015, Friday thru Sunday. Booked through travelocity and got a great deal for $89 per night, total with taxes two nights $200.90. Check in is late at 3:00 pm. I arrived pretty late at 7:00 pm and there was no line. However, check-in is frankly a pain in the rear. The front desk girl...

Awful staff, afwul bathrooms. There was no management on staff to hear our complaints. Parking attempted to charge triple of what was posted on their sign. This hotel is not even close enough to great beach locations to act as snobby as they do. Would never stay here again even if I won a free stay from the hotel.

This place is such a disappointment. They do not have real kitchenettes unless you consider a black piece of plywood stuck to the counter as a stove.

Great service and beautiful views. Adreli Victor took care of us at the front desk and was very helpful. The room was spacious, clean, and even larger than the pictures indicated online. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Had an amazing time with friends. The service was great, especially Ardeli Victor. Beach and pool were gorgeous and the Tiki bar was great for getting a quick lunch after a day on the beach. Will definitely stay again!
