Amazing! Restaurant in hotel, cozy fire pits and outdoor space. Free fruit infused water and beach supplies to use! Staff was very sweet and helpful and upgraded us to an ocean view room. As close to the beach as you can get!

This hotel is beautiful clean and has a kind staff. I went on a trip with my family (including 5 children ages 2 months-14yrs old) and it was perfect for us. We stayed in a suite that had 2 queen beds, and one sofa bed, so we all fit! We had a wonderful view of the ocean and pier. Only slight issue was there was only one bathroom and usually in hotel suites, we have two bathrooms which better suits a big family. But it’s hard finding ONE hotel room that fits an entire family as it is, so it was a minor inconvenience that we could live with. There WAS a bathtub AND a double shower all inside a very cute bathroom that was so pretty. And having a tub for the little ones was a plus. Hotel is located on top of other buildings, and room was directly above HQ Gastro PUB, so we could hear the muffled music until about 1am but I was so tired I didn’t care haha. There is no pool at this resort, but when you enter the check-in front desk area, to your left it opens up to a large outdoor patio that is beautifully decorated which has fire pits, and games like cornhole ping pong and fooseball. There are s’mores for the kids all night and happy hour from 5-6 with drinks if you’d like. There is no free breakfast at this hotel so we ate at the hotel restaurant which has great food but it was very pricey. Most places are at the beach though. The staff was smiling and happy to help which was a huge plus. We will definitely be going back.

Beautiful hotel. Loved that they had beach supplies, towels, chairs and umbrellas available. They even have s’mores at night to roast around the fire pits on the patio. Plenty of shopping and things to do. We will definitely be going back.

This property has the feel of a city hotel and not a beach resort. It has a hip feel and there are no grounds. The beach is further than the pictures look. It has some nice complimentary items such as free coffee, a free happy hour, and beach necessities. The regular rooms are on the small side and although the bathroom was nice the shower was anemic. Overall a 4 star hotel.
