  • Sadly, the beds were very uncomfortable. Ruined what is otherwise a lively property.

  • Did like that it’s only valet n they close the pool at 6pm. Not good when you have kids!…

  • 2.0.Poor

    Staff was not friendly, I understand they were mostly new hires, however, for the money spent, I expected to at least be greeted with a smile or be welcomed. The hotel was beautiful and the tram was great to take to the beach. This is a higher end area and priced accordingly, so I am not sure why the staff and service was so horrible. I’m not usually one to ever write a review, especially a bad one, but I was surprised at the way my family and I were treated.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice hotel but way overpriced for what they offer.

    Overall the hotel was nice but not what I would call luxury considering how much they charge for EVERYTHING! We ate at Ovide one night and for me, my husband, and our two children it was $260 with tip. The food was mediocre and nowhere near impressive enough for what they charge. The beds however were very comfortable if you like a firm mattress. The room was a standard hotel room with no features to call it luxurious considering that’s what they call themselves and charge. We were able to order breakfast to the room which also was way overpriced at $100. The rooftop pool was nice and the staff was friendly. Valet was on point but it is kind of ridiculous to charge $25 per day for parking.

    Great Hotel

    Great hotel with great modern vibes. Valet parking kind of sucked but it didn’t really affect the quality of our stay since we mostly used the shuttle

    Read and decide for yourself

    We were there from Tuesday-Friday, and room service didn't come until 5 pm on Thursday. We had to call multiple times to receive clean towels while the used ones were never picked up during our stay. Our concierge reccomended us to go to Alys Beach for a specific restaurant and for a visit to the beach. Supposedly it was easy to find, but there were multiple restaurants and didn't find it. PLUS... Alys Beach is all private, so we couldn't go to the beach. We used Uber during our stay, but after getting dropped off around Alys Beach we didn't know that Uber doesn't ride in that area. Huge disaster and it was extremely difficult going back to the hotel. Don't listen to the concierge who doesn't give good recommendations. The food and drinks were good, and our bartender Matt was so nice! He was one of the few good things about our stay. It's good the hotel has a free shuttle to the beach, but since other hotels are going there the beach is very packed. To end my rant... go visit Matt, stay clear of the concierge, get a rental car and bring your own towels.

    Long Valet wait times

    Expect daily long waits with Valet as they still need to sort their process issues out.
