Saw a description (I think at the hotel) that mentioned our "new" resort. Guessing the hotel was built in the 60's, but they have somewhat updated the rooms. The description of the hotel (a stretch to call it a resort IMO) is definitely fluffed up. What it does have going for it is the beach location and the fact that each room appears to have an oceanfront view with balcony. Asked for a king bed at check in and was told they have no kings because it's a family destination, only 2 bedded rooms. I now see kings are listed on the website, but maybe only for more expensive suites. Told I was assigned to the executive floor--not sure what made it executive--the room seemed very plain. Walked into the room and it seemed stuffy with an odd smell, then I realized it was some kind of air freshener which I really dislike.
Given a free drink for my Platinum status--tasted like sweet water. Funny rules about what kind of drinks are complimentary (i.e., no Margueritas). Tip: get beer or maybe wine for the freebie. Ordered some appetizers--they were okay, edible-- but caused us to skip ordering any more food/meals at the hotel. Bar, outside dining service was very poor and we were the only ones there. Hotel location is a few blocks away from the center of activity, which could be a good thing during busy times.
Positives were the front desk agent, Randi, and the resort activities coordinator, Jamie (who was so sweet and enthusiastic trying to get folks to partake in games). Pool area was nice. Key required for entry to/from beach to pool area. So if you are looking for a place where you can walk straight from the pool to a beautiful sandy beach, this is it. Also, enjoyed the balcony and full on ocean view. Just keep your room and "resort" expectations down.

Great place to stay. Staff was very good. The view of the ocean/ beach was great. Lot of food/beverage seating options.Outdoor patio area was very well done. Want to stay here longer next time.
Shower water pressure/volume was low.
