    Very outdated hotel that is worn. Would never stay there again. Most people arrived and after seeing the room refused to stay, mainly Americans !

    The age shows

    Hotel is old and not in great condition. It took 30 minutes to check in. Room had sugar ants, air condition that didn’t get very cold, no television remote and $35 resort fee includes beach chairs they run out of by 9:00 am.

    beautiful beach at a old hotel

    If your coming to stay at the beach and not inside a room this is a great hotel for the price. If you like a great room and don’t care about going to the beach stay in the downtown area of Sarasota.

    Bad hotel, great beach and staff

    Extremely overpriced for a very old and dated resort, dirty everything, little water pressure, poor drainage, etc. you get the picture. But the nicest beach and beach staff ever!!!

    Not a real resort, pictures are deceiving….

    It was nice to have the chairs and umbrellas delivered, charging for the tiki huts was ridicules, they were old and falling apart, and $75.00 a day was unbelievable. They also offered free bottled water, which was good. The beds were hard as rocks, and the rooms were smelly. TV was not very watchable, the screen was defective, and the bathroom was barely a one butt area. Hopefully the rooms with a view might have been in better shape, which means, more money, better accommodations.

    Nothing open after 7 on property

    Dated resort, people friendly, disappointed they take resort fees and everything closes before the sun sets, bar, restaurant outdoor bar. They claim because of the turtles, but unless turtle can climb a concrete wall and lay their eggs in concrete I call this a lame excuse.
