We arrived early in the AM. AJ was at the front desk and absolutely took care of us!! Was the quickest, smoothest check in EVER! The property is older but they made up for it with customer service! Awesomeness!

Poor customer service. Office not on site. Poorly managed. I would avoid staying here. You will regret it. Lots of people partying and drinking on the beach in front of it. Not a good family place to stay at all.

This place has the most friendliest staff but the hotel itself is very old and outdated. From the outside to the inside it needs to be renovated my opinion .... it's not even worth $30 a night after one night there I went to the main office and complained. My ceiling was falling in. My balcony was falling in. They... More

Costumer service is top notch. Perfect view of the golf. Wild dolphins and beautiful beach. Ashley and Celeste were really helpful and made our vaca/evacuation a great experience. The rooms are OK, a bit noisy but people are sociable so it works. Over all I will be returning, only next time it will for leisure.
