    Overall Good Stay Less a Couple Issues
    Overall I'd say it was a good experience. The only negatives I had were.. The restaurant in the hotel had a limited menu, the prices were kind of high, took forever to get our food, service was spotty, and the food was just OK. We only went for breakfast and decided not to go again. Not to mention it seemed a bit "high and mighty" for a restaurant on the beach. The valet temporarily lost my car key FOB. We called for a bell hop to help us with our bags and we checked out. We're standing around waiting for the car and they said they can't find the key. I ended up having to look through the valet box for my key and it wasn't there. Turns out the runner that parked my car Friday night kept the key in his pocket and took it home until it was returned Sunday morning. We didn't stand around and wait, they held our bags and we walked the pier and I got a call about an hour later saying they have the key and loaded our car up with the bags. A bit frustrating to say the least, but at least it was found. The room and bathroom were clean, beds were comfortable enough not the best. The view is gorgeous. The pool is heated but it could have been warmer. I liked that it had a bar next to the pool and access to the beach. I'd say again but I would do a couple things differently for sure.

    Great location
    The hotel was an ideal location. We were poolside, which meant we had direct access to the pool and larger patio/balcony area. However, it was very loud and relaxing was difficult. We would definitely stay again, but would request a higher room level next time. Service and staff were excellent.
