Very Good 8.0 From 631 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Hit and Miss
The hotel was very nice. A little expensive but for one night on vacation it was fine. Checking in was not the best. Checked in at 2:30p and 2.5 hours later was able to get into the room. For the high price of the room to charge $25 on top of that to park in their lot was a little extreme. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel clean. Would have loved to have left the balcony door open at night but with the semi-private balcony that wasn’t realistic.

Was a beautiful hotel right across from the beach. We went to the beach every day for several hours. It was wonderful. The Fiesta was going on that week so w

Good renovation
Great job in renovating the facility, but why do they ignore the fitness center.

Great location!
amazing stay with the exception of poor housekeeping service.
Mohammed, us5 night family trip
Fair 4.0
So disappointing! Find a beach view elsewhere.
Arrived to our “mountain view” room only to see a parking lot and large pile of rocks, so upgraded to a beachfront view. When you spend $400 a night, you shouldn’t have to deal with the following: Leaking ceiling. We literally got dripped on going in and out of the bathroom. It was “fixed” twice but we still collected water and a greenish liquid all three nights. Broken screen door and hair dryer. Barking dog next door that woke us up first day. Horrible room service. We ordered breakfast close to closing time, which was obvious when our server literally ran from our room after placing the tray on the bed. In addition to being cold, two meals were wrong and there was no cream for the coffee. We called 5 mins later (10:05 AM) but room service was closed. (I complained about this with the leaking ceiling and was able to get the meal comped, but that was as far as they went in trying to rectify anything. No response to a second call for compensation for the continued leak.) Our coffee pot and mugs from room service on day 1 were never removed by housekeeping (3 days!). Roots are pushing up the brick pavers throughout the property. We tripped repeatedly walking around the hotel. (Take caution!) Was billed for three nights of parking despite telling the woman twice while checking in that I did not have a car. I have more to list, but ran out of characters. It's been several days since I sent Hilton back their survey, but no reply. I'd hoped they'd want to make it right, but no.
