"Fun, family beachfront resort."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel was pretty nice and updated. It was very clean throughout. I was disappointed that they did not come clean the room, make the beds and take out the garbage each day. This sounds like it the new norm since the pandemic, pay the same price and get less service. It is the reason I choose a hotel/ resort over vacation rentals but if the service is no longer provided then would probably look into vacation rentals instead going forward.
