    Clean room with refrigerator and stove. Convenient location to ocean/beach. Friendly staff. Nice mattresses (tempurpedic). No smoking room available. Worked out great for us since we had several family members staying in the resort at the same time.

    Serving alcohol at noon at the outdoor pool, which also has no lifeguard.

    As a grandparent I found the resort kid friendly for my 2 year old grandchild. He was able to enjoy the activities at the site. I enjoyed the fact that the resort had an indoor/ outdoor pool(2) with specific areas for children, a play area with play equipment, outdoor area with grills,a refrigerator in the room. I do wish they had a microwave also. In all I will go back to the resort in the future, as well as recommending it to friends and family.

    No microwave in the room.

    Loved the amenities for families Loved the towel animals everyday loved the shuttle service

    Shower was nasty, rusty shower curtain bar, rusty and green shower drain, shower was all discolored. My friends bathrooms looked fine.

    Great location, excellent free shuttle bus service to the beach, clean room, comfortablle bed, nice extras like onsite pool, basketball, free video rental, restaraunt on-site, etc. Staff is friendly too. I highly recommend it. Way better than a beachside hotel.

    The only thing I did not like was the thin walls in the rooms. I could hear normal toe conversations from the room beside mine.

  • Family with children

    Our kids loved the indoor pool! The Pirate ship unfotunately closed on Labor day, so we didn't get to use it, but I'm sure they would have loved that as well.

    The rooms could have been cleaner - there was mildew in the toilet and on the shower curtain. The resort also needs updating all around - the mini golf was pretty torn up and it just looks dated.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Our two kids (3.5 years and 1 year) absolutely loved the pirate ship fountain and the indoor pool. The location of the hotel was close enough to the beach to go there and back easily but was far from the noise of the boardwalk. Our room was spotless and was cleaned on a daily basis by the staff.

    Minor complaints, really. A detachable shower head would've made showering kids easier. The towels were changed on a daily basis, which was appreciated, but unnecessary.
