The rooms were very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This hotel has amazing views and the beach is perfect for parents to enjoy drinks while the kids swim. Best Holiday Inn Resort we have stayed at yet!
Ordered breakfast at 7. Manager didn't care no breakfast before trip. I get a mistake but then to not care. Horrible management. Rooms ok restaurant good. Drinks very pricey. Used to be a well managed facility
