10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable, friendly service, right by the beach so super convenient. Gorgeous view of the water and even saw whiles. Nice pool.
6.5 Good
Pros: the location was very good, parking was easy, and we were given the room we requested. I did not get to see/use the pool as I arrived too late and left early. But it was nice that there was a pool.
Cons: The room was not as comfortable as I would have hoped at that price. Beds were fairly hard, bedding was cheap feeling. The room was extremely hot, but there was no air conditioning. We opened the windows, but there were no screens, so we had to risk bugs. The walls were very thin and we could hear our neighbors. The continental breakfast was available in the front office, to be eaten in your room. However even though you had to "take out" your meal, there were no lids for coffee cups... Overall I did not think it was much of a value.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean, Quiet and helpful at the desk.
10.0 Excellent

6.0 Good
Pros: The room was clean.
Cons: There was nothing special about this place, especially not for the price we paid. It was not outrageously expensive, however there a much cheaper hotels in the area that have the same to offer.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Landscaping, evening entertainment
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff couldn't have been kinder to the bride & groom. The guests were directed by staff and always helpful. Very relaxing environment, comfortable walking paths, and the breakfast was always plentiful and hot. Bed was super comfortable, plenty of towels and the bathroom was spacious for the shower, but not tub in the "standard" room. As a local who was here for a friends wedding, I'm very proud to highly recommend this hotel if you're in the area.
Cons: Air conditioning didn't work, but that's not unusual for a hotel near the beach. The open window cooled the room during the night. Wish I had a bathtub, but it wasn't a major priority for me since I was there for only one night and focused on the wedding festivities.

9.7 Excellent
Pros: Loved the continental breakfast and the grounds were great. Easy walking/running distance from the beach and made you feel like you were in the forest near the ocean. The fireplace with the Duraflame log was a nice touch to the very large room we stayed in.
Cons: The hotel room was a bit older and showed its age. But the hotel room was clean otherwise and very comfortable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice suite. Loved the bed. One of the more comfortable beds I’ve ever had at a hotel. Loved the patio but hated the chairs they provided. Too uncomfortable to sit in. It felt like you were almost laying down.
Cons: Change the patio chairs pronto
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The property has beautiful grounds. We stayed in what looks to be the newer cottages and was nice, spacious, and more private than the rooms in the larger building. The breakfast was great - lots of options!
Cons: The space and layout of the breakfast was cramped. Having the food serving area in a walkway doesn't work, especially for the number of guests having breakfast.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: Roomn, gardens, dining
Cons: Staff in lobby were not that helpful and not courteous. Dining staff were excellent. You need to have a gift shop where incidentals can be purchased along with souvenirs.
10.0 Excellent

Cons: Breakfast
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The location and facilities are very nice. I particularly enjoyed their hot tub.
Cons: We were told that there was free afternoon sangria and that the wine bar served wine and bar snacks until 11:30 PM. Neither statement is exactly true. There is free sangria but only until the very limited amount they make runs out – and they refuse to make more even though they have the ingredients available – and the bar only serves snacks until the staff gets tired of making them – which was very much earlier in the evening than is advertized.
