Positive Reviews

Wonderful views of the ocean and environs

The beachfront hotel complex has a breathtaking view of the ocean where guests can enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets right from their windows and balconies. It is also near restaurants and attraction sites such as Schlitterbahn Waterpark just a mile away where guests can explore.

The rooms are spacious, hygienic and very modern

Guests were very pleased with the large and comfy beds. There were adequate pillows on the beds and the mattresses were all quite comfortable. The housekeeping staff give them a thorough cleaning on a regular basis.

Kind, pleasant and multilingual staff members

The staff members are very warm and kind. They always go out of their way to make you feel right at home. They have a kind and welcoming approach which puts guests at ease from when they first walk into the hotel to the moment when checking out.

Negative Reviews

A few furniture and fittings were a bit dated

A few guests felt that the hotel could do with a bit of updating. Some pieces of furniture appeared to be run down and the carpets were a bit worn out in some areas.

The pools and other public areas can get packed

During peak seasons some guests have complained that the hotel gets too busy and the pools and other public areas are swarming with too much activity.

The hotel was quite expensive in general

Some guests were of the belief that the rooms were very high-priced once you took into account the room rates versus what was provided in the room. Most of them felt they did not get value for their money.
