Courteous staff
It was nice just not what I was expecting. Old patio chairs on the balcony. One was fixed and did not recline but the other one reclined and the spring or what ever gives it strength was broken. I sat back and the chair reclined where I hit my head on the balcony railing. Nothing serious just scared me. The table has four legs with balls under each each leg. Two of the balls were missing so when I sat my drink down the table tilted tilted and spilled the drink.I informed the desk on my check out...not a complaint just a note to make them aware. Room was 219. Overall staff was excellent with kindness extended at every location. Poolside was nice but my wife and I never made it to the hot tub in the evening as it seems to be a place more for the younger people. To many people at this location for the size of the pool. You need to get there early to stake out your chair.

Not a 4 star hotel!
It was just ok but I was expecting more for a 4 star hotel. The rooms need some renovating. Carpet was old and worn out. Check-in was easy and the lady was nice enough to give me an ocean view. But I asked for some items to be delivered to our room which never came.

Not a good value....
The property is in need of a significant update and is not in a condition as to what I would expect for a Hilton/DoubleTree property... certainly not worth the value for a personal getaway destination. Due to the huge rainfall there was mold smell in hallway... Room was musty and furnished with furniture from my grandparents era... door lock on my room was broken and hanging... the privacy between rooms was awful and I could hear conversations next door clearly. There was no DND sign provided. On the positive side the bathroom was updated and it was very nice.
