Air conditioner only went to 66 degrees. Not cold enough for me especially on a weekend that was 90+ degrees. Fire detector went off randomly at midnight. Had to have someone come look at that. No option to turn balcony light off so couldnt really enjoy it at night with all the bugs. Hotel was in a perfect spot for all the bars/shops. Non hotel guests used parking lot when going on uncle sam boat tour so had a hard time finding a spot to park. That needs to be better monitored. Pool was only open until 9pm. I hate that pools have a closing time or such an early closing time. Would have loved to use it later

fantastic trip
visit was great staff did excellent job accommodating us with all our needs. The boat trip to bolt castle and the 2 hr tour we took was a great way to see Alexandrea bay and all the islands. The crew on board the tour boats were of great help and very knowledgeable and friendly! Riley's restaurant has great food and enjoyable atmosphere along with excellent service. Plenty of places to shop and see within walking distance of the Hotel. Very nice trip glad we booked with capt. Thomas's resort.

Recommended stay at Alexandria Bay.
Amazing view from room. Clean accommodations. Shampoo was under par. (Good thing I brought my own.) TV stations not clear. Exceptional staff. Parking spaces are limited at times. Nicely heated pool. We would stay there again.
