In a quiet part of town but perfect if it's the beach you crave. Had pool level room (efficiency suite really) just steps from sand. Loved the view and loved the sounds of the ocean. Even though hotel fully booked we felt great privacy and no crowdedness (except for hot tub late eve). Loved the live yet mellow entertainment at...

Beachside Resort was beautiful. Great view of the beach. Heated pool, hot tub and gym. Hotel staff was super friendly. I will be returning. Very pleased with my accommodations I stayed a Friday to Sunday and left for a day and when I came back due to they're being open rooms the staff upgraded without paying extra. They were personable....

The hotel was a bit "rougher" on the exterior than expected. The room was fine and pretty clean. I was a little frustrated that I couldn't do a later checkout (instead of 11, I was checking out at 12)...but overall, okay for a single night stay.

I will talk to our housekeeping team leaders about making sure that they are approving as many late check outs as is operationally possible.

Private Balcony overlooking not too crowded beach. IF you want to be in the middle of the mayhem, don't stay here. I will definitely be coming back. They have a nice poolside bar. Cuervo...

Our room was large and enough space for our family, however, it was dated and there are no utensils like a bottle opener. The batch is small and the bathroom generally...

The staff at Beachside are super friendly, especially Susan the bartender at the reef bar. The facilities are nice, with beach access and a pool and hot tub. Rooms could use some updating but are generally clean and overall they are comfortable. hallways and points of access could use a good power wash. The only thing I would have liked...
