Guest Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great New Place on the Beach DATE: 20-25 July 2014 LOCATION: On the Beach, Close to Gulfarium and Restaurants OVERALL: A great stay at a great place EXTERIOR: Clean, well landscaped, plenty of lighting. Hotel is only 2 months old. A walkway to the beach featured both stairs and ramp for handicapped beach goers. INTERIOR: The interior is very clean and well maintained. A good sized lobby/sitting area offers a great place to hang out, watch television, read or surf the Net. The Bar and restaurant are both located here also. ROOM: The room was very clean. It had all the standard items you expect, fridge, coffee maker, table w/chairs. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot. FITNESS: Small fitness room with treadmills, elliptical, bike, and dumbbells and a television. POOL: They have an indoor pool and the outdoor pool. The indoor pool was nice and our 9 year old loved it. The outdoor pool offers a nice walk-in pool with a lazy river and waterfall. Plenty of inner tubes and water was great. There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas for everyone. You can even order food and drinks and the staff will bring everything to you. BREAKFAST/EATING: The Holiday Inn does not serve a continental breakfast but they do have a full service restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The prices are about what you would expect from any of the area restaurants and the food is plentiful. Children under 12 eat free with an adult meal. For breakfast you can get the buffet or off the menu. All of the food we had tasted great. The only issue we had was waiting on omelets one morning. The cooks prepare food for the buffet, room service and short order. Other than that everything was fine. STAFF: Staff was GREAT! Everyone was friendly and helpful. They always greeted us when we walked by. That is something we really look for when we stay somewhere. OTHER ACTIVITIES: They publish a schedule for the next day’s kid’s activities. They have mermaids, face painting, games, and Dive In Movies. We enjoyed sitting out around the pool watching The Croods. Special shout out to Stephen in Maintenance. We were in the indoor pool with a couple other people and a couple of boys were diving and trying to make big splashes. They were doing it deliberately and Stephen politely and tactfully asked them to stop. The boys muttered a couple of comments and left. He showed a lot of professionalism. Thank you. Overall we enjoyed our stay there. It was one of the most relaxing beach vacations we have had in a while. I will definitely plan on staying there again in the future. The only suggestions I would recommend would be safety strips in the bathtub to avoid slipping when it is slippery and some type of identification system around the pool so that the staff will know where to deliver food and drinks. Saw this several times where the staff person had to walk around and ask who ordered something. Either a number clipped or draped over the backs of the chairs would work perfectly. July 28, 2014
