We frequent this property when we put guests up there and for their tiki bar and other dining opportunities. Food is always spot on and drinks good. At happy hour they have some specials including half of starters and discounted beverages. The eighth floor is a favorite with a killer view, but temporarily closed for renovations. We look forward to the new space and pizza ovens!
The rooms in this property have been tastefully remodeled with beach vactioneers in mind. They thought of everything and I loved the colors and modern room amenities. The pools were beautiful and just the right temperature. however, the spas were a bit cool.
We all enjoyed the Tiki Bar, the private beach and the beach chairs and umbrellas. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
We found the on site restaurant sub standard for this type of property. Actually, the food was borderline at best for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The round lamp table in our room needed to be repaired or replaced and our ironing board was quite tippy.
It was a shock to see all the taxes and charges on the bill and yet we had to pay for parking and umbrellas on the beach.
Time to step it up to the next level LBR.
