Pros/ Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly. Excellent location. Con/ Out dated. Will come back again.
Oceanfront room was lovely. Checkin was very friendly and thorough.
I was not told about any of the amenities upon checking in, so I can't comment on using the pool etc. The new rooms are very nice.
We arrived late and the staff was fantastic. The room was clean, and the beds were very comfortable. It was a great experience. We didn’t get a chance to use the pool, etc so I cannot comment on those. I would certainly stay there again.

The room was nice and the staff was friendly. The food at the onsite restaurant (Smoke and Water) was not good and over priced. The Spa prices were crazy also, $65 for a simple manicure. Ridiculous!
