Nice property. Very cod oracle, except slamming doors are way too loud in the off-hours and the noise form the Nest downstairs is too loud until midnight, so if you want a quiet room, be sure to mention you don’t want to be near the Nest.

Perfect chill spot. Easy chitchat with other guests by the pool. Excellent staff at the pool. Clean and simple room- Would add some lighting in the bathroom- kind of dark for getting ready. The food was great - service at the restaurant was below average. We had a reservation at 8 pm we ordered appetizers and drinks. The server then told us we had to put in our entree order at that moment or not at all " per the chef" .. Hard to believe that was true- seemed like the server just didn't want to be there much longer.. Still a great spot!

Very cute and pink boutique hotel. Comfy rooms, artsy bathrooms, fun pool area, super nice staff, great food at Pink Cabana. Definitely draws younger female guests and Insta influencers but we oldsters loved it too.
