Liked the view of the ocean and the amenities. Restaurant was short staffed. Service packed for that reason.

My reservation was cancelled 1hr before arrival; my ocean view room was apparently given to someone else, and replaced with a 4th floor parking-lot view room - and not only did they not comp the substituted "Inland", it was initially "discounted" to $150 (from the listed $184 rate - really $245), and the agent acted as if that was a great deal. In the end, the room was discounted to $125 (tactually $170-something) and I was given an $80 food voucher - but that wasn't what I reserved, wasn't what I wanted, and did not compensate for cancelling my ocean-view room...they should have comp'd the poor-substitute room.

I thought I had booked 2 rooms, but had only booked one. My granddaughters decided to go ahead and book another room for them and actually got their room over a hundred $less than what I paid Travelocity for my room. ☹️ The food was good but overpriced.
