Thank you for your review, Lucy. I have to admit, I'm a bit sad I didn't get to witness your attempt to bicycle in the sand! I'm sure your audience was, indeed, amused! I apologize for the issues with the hairdryer and phone in your room, but am happy to hear they were resolved quickly. We hope you'll visit us for more sandy fun soon.

We are so excited to try this hotel and looking forward to time on the beach. We had gulf front room and noticed immediately that the hotel pool side music was so loud we couldn't even sit on our 3rd floor balcony. Front desk said they would turn it down but didn't or couldn't.

Is there a tiki outside type bar? Do they serve food? Is there a link to the menu w/ prices? Are they open weekdays? How much are drinks? Any frozen drinks? Open all year or seasonal? Are drinks allowed on the beach in front of hotel property - shore?
Yes they have an outside bar. Their drinks are a bit on the expensive side. Drinks are allowed however No glass on the beach.

I’m looking to go in November for my son’s birthday. Is the pool heated?
Hi Lauren! Our outdoor pool with lazy river are heated when it’s not warm enough from the Florida sunshine! :). We do also have an indoor pool and hot tub that are heated the entire year. Hope to see you splashing around soon!

"Grab a corner unit if available otherwise go for the top floors for the views. And always spring for the gulf FRONT view."
"Splurge for the Gulf View towards the center. Otherwise you are looking at the parking lot or listening to the commercial ACs all night."
"Ocean View"
"Book the ocean side of the hotel."
