  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great place for fun and relaxation.

    Clean rooms, very close to the beach and the pool was amazing. There were so many activities and having options for food made it convenient. We could have spent our whole vacation without having to leave the resort, but it was close enough to shopping and other area attractions that we could spend some time exploring. This would be a great place to take the whole family for some fun time.

    Loved our stay!

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ended up showing up early and since our room wasn't available yet, they let us have temp wrist bands to use the grounds and they let us check our stuff in with them so we wouldn't have to carry it around. All doing this with a smile and great personality. The room was clean and bright. Loved our ocean view and the balcony that we had to enjoy it even more. The grounds were very beautiful with little waterfalls in different places and well maintained plants. The best part was the beach was right there! Walked out of the hotel, crossed a cool little bar and the sand was right there. If you didn't want to, you wouldn't have to leave the grounds at all. They have a gift shop that also supplied little necessities if you forgot yours, and also had a restaurant and a bar. The Aloha Felicia drink was SO good! Loved our stayed! Would recommend this place to everyone. Oh and it didn't have the ridiculously high "resort" fees like most that we called on had.

    Decent but old and crowded

    This is a pretty nice place except it needs renovating, especially the pool. The grounds are really big so when it says "on the beach" it's still a 10 min walk to the beach. The pool was super crowded to the point where there were no pool chairs available. It was decent but all in all overpriced.

    Photos misleading

    We were disappointed with the room that we had due to the fact that when you look at the advertisement it says on the beach and photos do not show that there are room located behind the big building that’s facing the beach. It was our anniversary and we looked so forward to sitting on the balcony and listening to the waves and watching dolphins in the morning. Other than that, the outside was very kept up and pretty and we loved the big pool with the swim up bar.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Don’t stay here!

    The hotel itself was nice the pool and location was great and the room was clean but the from desk people were very rude and asking for something simple like towels they made seem like a huge bother to them. Also I had a $1200 camera stolen from my room and no have no pictures from our trip plus my pictures from the last 4 years are all gone because they were on that same SIM card and every time I call the hotel for an update to see if they’ve “located” it they just hang up or yell at me to stop calling. Overall I would never stay at this hotel again. Picture of the video I took of some of our pictures the night before my camera was stolen is included

    Amenities and hotel stay was great. My only complaint is that there was not a closet to hang clothes up or keep things out of the way.
