    Great location and beautiful property

    The staff other that the grounds keepers were nasty and not helpfull. The maid actually yelled at us because we were twenty minutes late to checkout. I have never stayed at a hotel that demanded that you leave the room by ten o'clock in the morning. My family had several other encounters with the staff from room towels to service issues and the staff was uncooperative and even refused to look for an item that we left in their baggage storage area. We will never stay at this hotel again.

    I loved The location, the beach is outstanding. Gorgeous. If the guest choose a two bedroom, front beach, it will be a pleasant stay. The other choices don´t worth, are very poor.The building is old, but the place is ok.

    The location is superb; it doesn't really get any better when you want to enjoy the beach and the ocean. The hotel seems pricey, but you have to compare to the others on the strip, like the Trump International next door; it puts it more in perspective. Plus to have a full kitchen in the room was great for preparing breakfast. At first we were disappointed, because the photo's on the website suggest a more luxurious surroundings than in reality. Nevertheless, it was clean and the staff was friendly and forthcoming. We never saw any of the notorious palmetto bugs or other members of the ususal Floridian fauna! The pool and spa facilities were great as well. Overal: not cheap but a fair deal nonetheless.

    It was kind of strange the rooms are only cleaned once a week and you have to get your own change of sheets and towels when you need/want to. However, this didn't bother us once we got used to it and who is looking to pay the double just to get you towels brought to you? Further the parking lot and garage have limited space, so you can be confronted with having to park across the street, which is a nuisance, but it's only $20 a week compared to that amount per day at other hotels.

    Very good

    Right on the beach, nice pool with free towels, free computer and printer access, fully equipped kitchen.

    The efficiency rooms appear slightly rundown.

    Very good

    The location is excellent, the beach beautiful and clean. The pool and bar service are what one would expect when you want to relax.

    The infrastructure of the hotel is a little out of time. The elevators are really slow and the air conditioners were placed on the balconys, not pretty.

    The staff at the front desk were very nice. The pool staff was rude! The hotel does not provide shampoos in the unit. They provided 2 small soaps for family of 5 and had to ask the laundry dept. for more. Also all towels/linens had to be brought in to the laundry dept for an exchange to a new/clean one - what an inconvenience to the customers dragging the linens/towels all the way to that little hole!

    The location is great ! a few steps from the beach. The staff is very nice, you can borrow games for the kids. The pool is heated, big and very clean. The gardens are beautiful. We rented a villa, and had a wonderful time. There is a bar/restaurant by the pool with very good and affordable food. We were there with kids in november (low season) , there were few people and we had a great time : the place is between skyscrapers buildings (that you do; not see from the villas) and it's got some old fashion look which is very relaxing (a little bit like living in the tv show Hawaii five-0, the original one !). It was worth the money we paid for it !

    The furniture inside the villa was out of style but if we had a problem (which we had with a closet door), the staff was very reactive, very helpful and nice. The taxes are not included .

    The sense of continuity -- this is an old-school timeshare condo, in contrast to the giant glitzy high rises around it. Relaxing and unpretentious rather than glamorous. Surface parking instead of valet. Access to the gorgeous beach and a nice swimming pool. Grounds are nicely landscaped. A lot of businesses within easy walking distance, including restaurants, bakeries, drugstores, etc. Nicely equipped kitchen so you can actually buy groceries and eat there instead of going out all the time.

    Layout of the unit was a bit odd -- mainly, the bathroom was difficult to navigate since the door had less than an inch of clearance in front of the toilet, and there wasn't really enough room to hang up towels. Our coffeemaker blew up when we tried to use it, though the maintenance staff was very prompt in replacing it. The exterior trim of the buildings -- doors, windowframes, railings -- looks a little battered.
