My husband and I stayed 4 nghts at the Point Pleasant resort in July 2009. Although the views from the hotel, which has been built and is located high up on the hilltops, is beautiful, you could find better in the area. There are no elevators and there is very steep walking areas just to get around the hotel . Although there is a shuttle that will pick you up anywhere around the resort, we found it to be annoying to have to use that just to get around. We anticipated the hills and the hiking to get around the resort but didn;t expect that it would be really too uncomfortable for us. After a long day at the beach...the last thing you want to do is hike 40 steps to your room in that heat! The hotel does not offer breakfast at either of the 2 restaurants so you would either have to have your own car or take the complimentary shuttle from the hotel next door to the Wyndham to eat. We chose to stock up on breakfast foods since we stayed in a superior suite with a full kitchen. The Agave Terrace restaurant has good food, great views, great service, but a little expensive. There is also no room service, but only take out from either of the 2 restaurants on the property. We also rented a car, which is highly recommended, if you don't mind driving on the left side of the road. Our suite was clean but really outdated. The whole property needs renovations and the front desk staff were really not too friendly. The beaches on the property are a joke...you can't even swim there....the pools are small, nothing special. There is no wi-fi access from the rooms and only from the lobby area....we didn't even try it since it would be a hike just to get there! Overall, I would recommend you stay next door at the Wyndham...they have so much more to offer, it is prettier, more updated and will make your vacation more enjoyable. If you rent a car you must visit Megans beach, it is the most gorgeous beach and I hear this beach is on the top 10 beaches list in the world!
