Even though location is great, rooms need to be renovated, AC unit didn't work properly but room was cleaned. Not enough parking at the property, and the food served by the pool was burnt. Everything else was fine except for the over priced rooms.

The pool area is amazing. Dj doing games, music wonderful for kids. The beach is right behind the hotel. There are games and a bar right on the beach. There are other restaurants close by so you don't have to drive anywhere.

Even though it’s located on the beach an offers two pools the check in an out is horrible. Your account is charged for the amount we payed in cash an caused us a lot of problems. The shower was clogged causing us issues an after calling for this to be corrected you had to leave a message for call back it never happened. We even had to call housekeeping for toilet paper which took several hours to get it. Our stay was very disappointing for the price we paid for beach front.

Overall, our stay was great! The property is beautiful, and I loved Yoga on the Island Green! Our rooms faced the gulf, and it was absolutely beautiful! The location of the ice machine in the hallway isn't ideal. It is VERY loud (and we weren't even that close to it). People using it woke us up at all times of night. We were also very frustrated with how loud some of the belligerent guests were during early morning hours. Although that is beyond the control of the resort, it would be nice if there were some kind of notice/reminder for people to be mindful of guests after a certain hour, especially since it is a family-friendly place. Lastly, we felt like the maintenance of the grounds was lacking in some ways, like peeling paint (inside and outside), and a broken adjoining door.

Really a nice find. I thought the price was great, location was perfect. I was uncertain about what room to book when I booked. I really dont think you can go wrong with any room you get in this complex. The tower or the side buildings. No matter which one you get your a 1-2 min walk to the beautiful beach. The pools all appeared to be clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly. Their breakfast in the mornings was very good, and the young lady that waits on you in the breakfast area is so nice. Lastly, the Island takes care of their Active Military Service Members who stay with special offers. Be sure to let them know. Anybody that gives this place less then 4 stars has lost their mind. I would recommend this place, for being clean, friendly, affordable, location, steps from the beach, comfortable beds, and nice pools. PS we loved the room keys. Happy Travels.
