Loved the Ryder hotel. It was incredibly clean, super cute, staff were attentive and kind, and the location can't be beat. The pool is great for a round of drinks, and overall I have zero complaints.

The property is beautiful. The decor and style is pretty. Room was great. Staff was great. Really accessible. I booked this for a trip I was taking my 9 year old nephew on, and picked this hotel because it had a pool. But the pool vibe is a little more upscale and adult because of the restaurant attached to it. The restaurant was also pretty upscale for a pool restaurant. Would be perfect for dinner by the pool, but not for like grabbing a bite and a swim mid day.
