              The beaches were clean, facility very excellent, comfortable and although traveled without our kids, we will definately return and bring them. Our room had an excellent view and was close to pool, bar and beach.

              Parking. There should be access for hotel patrons versus wedding reception guests.

              Location

              Facilities seem old and tired. One of our rooms was posted no smoking but had been smoked in. The hotel could not provide a change of rooms.

              Loved location to the beach, clean rooms, friendly staff, and especially the grotto.

              Dogs!! Barked early in the morning waking us and bark when we walk past them.

              Its location was first class and the staff were helpful and friendly- nothing too much trouble

              It would have been nice to have a kettle to make tea - particularly for those from the UK

              The sandy beach, location to everything.

              Needed updating.

            • Older travelers

              I really liked that when I wake up, I opened the curtains to the most beautiful site! I absolutely loved the beach view! It was also nice to close to the elevators, I know a little lazy, but being at the beach on vacation is all about being lazy. ;D

              I didn't like that the pool around the grotto bar was really, really cold. Even with the sun beating down on it all day, it was freezing to cold to even stay in for more than a second., maybe think about a warmer. If the grotto bar is supposed to be the attraction for pool view, then people would want to go there more if water wasn't so cold. I also didn't really like that the bed was a little too hard, but the fact that we had the best view I can't complain.:) But over we loved it:) Thank you very much for the wonderful stay.

              The fact that there was something for the whole faminly to do from the splash pad for the kids to the swim up bar in th pool for the adults and the beach for everyone.

              I was very disappointed with this Ramada. Having stayed at Ramada's numerous times before, I figured that this would be the same caliber as the others. Very disappointed, rooms were old, dirty, bedding {pillows too} very uncomfortable. Staff was very unpleasant and honestly, I'm sorry to stay I honestly can't find any good comments to make about this facility

            • Family with children
              3.8

              The location is the only reason this Ramada is still in buisness. The rooms are in bad shape from repeated "spring breaker's" renting them. When we arrived out room had blood stained towels, dirty blankets and the restroom needed cleaning as well.

              This site has asked for a review however, it also states that it does not what complaints. My review is not a complaint I took pictures of all the problems and have proof that this Ramda hotel is not as advertised.

            • Couple
              5.4

              The location was close to everything and very nice staff.

              We have stayed at this hotel before and it was very nice, "before". We found trash and bottle tops under the bed, the beds were very uncomfortable and the pillows very flat, so we dis not get much sleep. It also surprised me there were no microwaves in the rooms, every hotel we stay in has microwaves.The hotel is not like it use to be and it was very disappointing.

            • Family with children
              4.2

              The kids splash garden play area and courtyard pool grounds

              The room that we received was not the room I booked based on the pictures that were shown on the Internet when I made the booking. When I went to the front desk to ask to be switched, I was told that the room I viewed was a suite which was more expensive. She told me I must have clicked on the wrong room, and despite the hotel being virtually empty, she did not attempt to rectify my dissatisfaction. I can tell you that I DID NOT click on a suite when I was making the booking because I chose my room based on price and I was not searching for a suite to begin with. I clicked on standard room with pool view and a picture came up that showed a small breakfast bar area with bar stools, microwave, and fridge and that is why (along with the price displayed) that I chose that room and in fact there was a place to leave "messages" on the page when I booked and I even commented that I wanted to make sure that I got the room that I was looking at while making the booking. So obviously no one looks at that otherwise the correct thing to do would've been for someone to contact me prior to our arrival to let me know that apparently there was an error with the way the pictures were displayed on the Internet. What we should've done is asked for our money back and moved to a different hotel, but instead we spent the week in a cramped, damp, and dirty room with a 5yr old and a 3 month old. It was not an enjoyable trip

              We liked the kids splash pad n pool.The ocean view was nice too.

              The rooms are outdated and dirty.

              Grotto Bar, ocean view and rooms were nice

            • Family with children
              6.2

              The beach location was very nice, wish we'd have have had a better interior room.

              We had tried to get an upgrade to an interior room, had no idea it was a motel room instead of hotel. They wouldn't do it do to supposedly scheduling. I also asked for a late check out on our last day and we were locked out by 10am. That was frustrating so we got out of there. Won't return to this hotel. It also needs updating and is just a little below Ramada cleanliness standards in my opinion.
