The hotel rooms are excellent. Clean, very well finished, comfortable, stylish, luxurious. There was enough room to have a pack-n-play no problem. Love the little kitchenette area to keep some food. Plenty of space to store items in the shelves and drawers. The bathroom was great, too, and it was nice to have windows in there too. Lots of hooks too. Service was really good and quick for room service, two maintenance calls, beach chair setup, beach food ordering and delivery... The maintenance calls were b/c our safe didn't work. We couldn't retrieve our items once they were locked in. The only other negative feedback I have is that the pool is in need of repairs - the tile around the inside edge is falling off. It is not a deal breaker by any means, but it doesn't match the luxurious feel of the rooms. The pool is otherwise great. It has a fenced off area for little kids and on the other side there is a bench along the width of the pool that is fun for slightly bigger kids. And the deep end is very deep so there is something for everyone. The beach was great, so close and convenient because the entrance is right across the hotel. The beach chairs can also use a little updating as most of the ones we had were rusty. They cover them with towels but it made me uneasy when my daughter scraped herself on a rusty nail that was sticking out. There is no elevator so we kept our stroller and beach toys in the car. I highly recommend this hotel, especially for families.
