Besides the ridiculous $40 resort charge for no amenities, the acoustics between rooms was the worst I have ever experienced. To cap it off, the elevator broke on departure and I had a long 30 min waiting to be extricated. OUCH, what a bad spot

The holiday weekend was marred with deafening jackhammering due to repairs to several of the property's buildings. The noise was inescapable. "Resort View" was a room overlooking all the mechanical equipment on a lower roof, with the parking lot's orange lights flooding into the room. The juliette balcony door had a sign taped up by mgmt saying opening the broken door was prohibited. I was offered an upgrade on the second day but since the phone in the room was broken, I couldn't call the desk to confirm switching to another building on the beach, which also happened to be under construction. By the time I went to the lobby in person, that room was already given away. We still moved to the beach building but the air conditioner was moldy and there were red ants crawling all over the walls. We were eaten alive by bugs and mosquitoes. The staff was sympathetic and really tried to help but I think the hotel is poorly operated and lacks proper management.

The hotel is having some renovations and website did not inform us. However property is located in a beautiful place and staff and amenities are very good. The beach is clean and resort provides beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. The pool is clean and inviting and is next to the bar /restaurant. We will definitely go back.
