    Weekend Family Vacation

    We spent two night during a family vacation. Hotel is located in a semi gated resort with multiple other hotels. Parking at this location is valet parking only. Valet service was fast and staff are very attentive. On the other hand bell service was lacking direction during check-in and check-out. We were skipped three times by bell service while waiting at our car in valet for check-in. Valet advised bell service twice, but the bell service personnel just plainly ignored them which in turned caused the valet service to get backed up. During check-out, bell service was fast, but left all the luggage in the luggage cart at car side after receiving tip. The valet personnel help load the luggage without even asking. The hotel was very nice and clean. Rooms are spacious and has a empty mini fridge. Room service for dining is provided and you order over a tablet provided in each room. We had room service breakfast prior to visiting beach; which was good, but price is on the high end. They provide shuttle services around the resort property including the beach. Hotel lacked food choices and only had one restaurant and also food service at pool side. Tons of great restaurants and shopping nearby and I believe shuttle services may take you to a few that is located close to property. We did not get to experience every the hotel had to offer such as night life because we have a toddler. Weekend nights after rooftop pool closes, they have a DJ. Overall, our stay was nice.

    Overall it was great! Staff was super friendly, but sometimes it was hard to get them on the phone as it was so busy. Beds were not as comfy as they could be, a little hard. Could use more hooks in the bathroom especially when you are using the pool, beach and showers a lot. Loved the location and the food. Would definitely recommend.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Staff was not friendly, I understand they were mostly new hires, however, for the money spent, I expected to at least be greeted with a smile or be welcomed. The hotel was beautiful and the tram was great to take to the beach. This is a higher end area and priced accordingly, so I am not sure why the staff and service was so horrible. I’m not usually one to ever write a review, especially a bad one, but I was surprised at the way my family and I were treated.
