For the Price.....I Expected More.

We stayed mid week through the weekend. Check in was great, our room was ready two hours before check in time and the desk clerk was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a ground floor garden view room. The room smelled musty but appeared clean, other than stained carpet. After airing out the room with the patio door open, it didn't smell as bad. The white bed comforters were also stained with small spots. Furniture was pretty dated. The mini-bar fridge was not cold. Our coffee maker didn't work, but we had it promptly replaced. The beds were super comfortable and the resort was quiet at night until the weekend hit. There were a few weddings and some rather loud guests above us so we used earplugs. The location was plus, being right across from the beach. We ate at the bar once, and waited over 45 minutes for the one waitress working (not her fault) to take our order due to all the wedding guests. The parking fee was ridiculous considering what we paid per night to stay there. When the weekend hit and the weddings were going on, we could barely find parking. No free internet as well. I wouldn't really call this place a resort. It's an older hotel that was probably really nice in it's prime, but now it's outdated and overpriced. We saw several other places that we should of stayed at and saved a lot of money. We will not be returning to this establishment, nor can I recommend it due to the value for your money.
