We have been here multiple times and we keep coming back. The beach is fantastic, the service is great, and the facility is top notch. The gulf front rooms have a great view and balconies where you can sit and enjoy the day.

Honestly, my husband and I i got sick. I'm pretty sure it was from swimming in the ocean. Wish I had a different answer for you. Beautiful location, great hotel. Just stay out of the ocean. The pool is wonderful.

Yes! The hotel is very accommodating. And we arrived 1.5 hours before check in and our room was ready. We were allowed right in---they don't guarantee an early check in but the room should be ready before 4pm. Enjoy!
