Score from 145 reviews Very good
They bumped us over to the member side. The beds were ridiculously comfy with some soft feather top cushion ontop of the mattress. The food at the member grill and Waterline restaurants were excellent. The spa was relaxing and reasonably priced. Excellent view, quiet rooms, friendly staff.
We got bumped from the Member Grill because it turns out we were not allowed to eat there. However, they moved us to the hotel side and bought us a round of drinks. Nicely handled.
Location on bayfront
Some staff could be somewhat rude, l Lots of noisy kids Long waits for room service Add 30% to your room rate for resort fees and parking
WiFi should be free. Valet Parking was too expensive.
The hotel is nice and the location on the harbor was great. Breakfast was very good. Weather was perfect.
We were told at check in that they overbooked the hotel and could only provide two queen beds. Normally not a big deal but this was Valentine's Day with my wife and I really needed a king bed. I asked to speak to manager and was told he was unavailable. A couple from England checking in at the same time were told they had no room at all available. The wife from England started to cry and scream out loud. This is when it gets crazy after check in we proceeded to our room and got stuck alone in the hot elevator for 30 min. At first my wife being a big fan of the book 50 shades of gray thought this was part of the Valintines Day I planned out. That all changed quick when she realized there was no air and the maintenance crew had to break the elevator doors open to get us out 30 min later with a audience of tourist cheering.
A wonderful relaxing trip away with just the hubby and I, no kids, it was a "great getaway!"
More access to the Club side.
availability of room service items were very limited and always an issue. Went there.for boat parade and hotel was not prepared for event. Embarrassing seeing it is every year.
hotel was no prepared for boat parade even though it is every year. Bar/restaurant was poorly staffed and inprepared. Same with room service....
location to hospital clean
Didn't have record of my booking Say they have room service but didn't deliver to the room, just blow you off. Take forever to check in
Room service guy was great
Having a wedding party blocking a hallway for pictures, and being mocked by one of the groomsmen as I tried to squeeze by.
Dirty carpet Noisey Service staff barely spoke English
Waterline bar very relaxing environment after hours
poor parking high cost of valet service housekeeping poor bathroom sinks very slow draining not a destination resort
Clean, spacious hotel set right on th water's edge. Sunset views from restaurant towards the island are breathtaking. Staff friendly and professional. Concerge very helpful. Waterline Restaurant experience was wonderful as was the SPA. I would return in a heartbeat
The hotel is going through a process of redecoration, the reception area is really nice and contemporary. The bedrooms look a little dated in comparison but I can see plans are afoot to update throughout. Pool bar service whilst staff was polite it was not as efficient as I have had in other hotels. You had to seek out the staff.
Broken TV remote. Broken toilet seat.
I liked the location and the ocean view we had. I traveled with my wife and 2 kids who also enjoyed the view!
I had a horrible experience trying to check in at this resort. They gave me a room with only 1 bed when I booked 2 beds because of my family. The guy told me since I booked through booking.com it didnt mean anything because I didnt book directly through the resort that there was no telling what kind of room I would receive!! I have a real issue with this especially when I pay good money to stay at this resort.
Friendliness of staff Updated construction throughout. Nice front desk reception, coffee shop, and eateries. They really know how to add fun, entertaining activities available on the grounds that is suitable for people of all ages.
Gym for regular guests outdated and did break down on several occasions. I had the opportunity to stay on the club side another time I was visiting and the equipment there was top of the line but you will pay much more for your stay. The room furniture is needs to be updated. Same pieces since 2005 and showing their age.
The location is perfect. The water views amazing
We faced the parking in front. They closed the pool for the day we arrived.
Patrick on the concierge The room was comfortable and spacious The cafe downstairs that you could pick up a coffee at fair prices
Extortionate charges added into the bill for 'service' regardless of what we used Not being able to get access to the town car despite asking in excess of 8 times during our stay Location on a busy road, with no local restaurants open past 10pm and nothing in walking distance Clientele a bit older than we would have liked, all elderly and families
The location was great, the pool was nice, beds were comfortable.
The service from the front desk to the wait staff was horrible.
Rooms were very comfortable
Bed selection from booking.com did not make it to their reservation system (wanted a room with two beds, but the reservation they had did not mention it)
Consistent Staff and facilities Attention to details Pool
Bar- Need to work out the bugs in new offering.
We stayed in a Superior room, #385. It was extremely spacious and had a huge balcony and a wonderful view of the water. We liked that in addition to the standard desk, there was a table with 2 upholstered arm chairs and an ottoman for lounging. Bathroom was updated, all marble, two sinks, soaking tub and separate shower. Staff were very courteous and not stuffy. Great food at A&O restaurant. Loved the stuffed dates. We will return !
Only thing missing was an area for doing my makeup instead of standing at the vanity sink.
Nice hotel with nice and clean hotel rooms. The concierge and the personal in general was very helpful.
The hotel is located directly at the quite noisy highway. The hotel is located quite isolated between other buildings - too bad it's not possible to walk along the harbor /beach.
Beautiful from the moment you pull up. I'm a single mom with 14 year old twin boys and we loved the location. They were very impressed with moms first choice on our own road trip up the coast. The room was a great size, extremely clean, and very comfortable. We arrived late and ordered a movie and room service. We had problems with the movie but the services were reversed without even asking. The food was great. They accomodated out late checkout. Of all the hotels we stayed at on our nine day road trip this was by far my favorite.
The only problem I had was when I arrived they could not find my booking and that did take about thirty minutes to get straightened out.
