    Stay to remember

    This stay was definitely nice, I don’t if it was because we were kid free, but my spouse and I enjoyed being to lounge on the beach and have food and drinks delivered. The inside of the hotel is designed beautiful

    The Experience does not Justify the Price Tag

    This resort was "refreshed" a few years ago but still needs work. Housekeeping: We found leftover food from Wendy's in our drawer when opening to put our things away. Outdoor furniture was filthy. I called twice to have it cleaned so we could use it. Sound proofing not good. Could hear people talking and doors opening and closing all night. We stuffed towels under the door to keep out the light as much as possible. Drinks, including cup of basic coffee, are grossly overpriced, as is all food. Fortunately, there are options a short uber drive away. Valet parking - over 65 a day with taxes. One would think the service would reflect the price. We texted as requested and were told car would be there in a max of 10 minutes. 20 minutes later, still waiting and finally checked with valet and they had "forgotten" to go and get it. If you are going to gouge for a service, at least provide a decent level of it. Pool areas were nice. Gym was nice.

    Don’t waste points here. Gold members mean nothing. Horrible night service.

    Probably one of the worst hotel rooms I’ve ever had the misfortune to book. Being a Hilton gold member means nothing. We spent 80k points. We had one night during a layover and figured we would get a nice room and stay at pool a bit. However long flight delay meant We arrived at 2am. Hotel front desk was rude. Room was the size of a closet. The bed was against the wall and we could barely move around. Toiletries missing. No toilet paper. Bed smelled. Went down and the front desk person ran away as I approached the desk. I was there for 15 minutes no one around to help. Now it’s 3am. We are exhausted. We are checking out at 11 so it’s not even worth it. Being gold I thought they would move us (didn’t even expect upgrade but there were 45 open rooms). But they handed us the missing items. We went back to the room and got a few hours of sleep. In the morning the hotel was totally different. Lovely staff. Beautiful pool and view and friendly people. I am upset that a weary traveler came and ended up in a terrible room without the amenities and I was still charged the points. In the morning we tried to speak to front desk but it was a long line of people and we had to catch a flight . Don’t waste your points here!

    Great Customer Service

    Absolutely love the stay here, rooms were super clean. The staff was great - one of the best customer services I have had. Brenda who helped us out by the pool was super sweet, she provided some much for our needs.

    Family get away weekend

    Great hotel. However, no ramp for babies stroller in the pool area and elevator was not functional. Pool is also not heated for anyone that may be wondering. Food is not bad but a bit over priced in my opinion, and no room service available. Apart from that great ambience and hotel over all. Great pool staff. Briana stood out the most to us, very attentive and hospitable!
