AAA Inspector Notes
Expect to find spacious accommodations at this full-service resort nestled on the white sandy shores at Dawn Beach. Rooms feature a furnished balcony and the bathrooms have separate tubs and showers. Opened in 2006, the hotel continues to be an island favorite, especially due in part to the large pool area that faces the ocean. The pool area is open 24 hours a day but the food and beverage service stops at 7 pm. The well equipped fitness room is also open 24 hours a day. Every Wednesday is the Pirate's Night celebration from 5:30 to 10:30 pm with live music, fire dancing, face painting and a lavish buffet. Meets AAA guest room security requirements. Smoke free premises. 317 units. 3 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: This luxury "resort" is more of a Holiday Inn so there is decent accommodation but nothing luxurious. The breakfast buffet was decent. As a vegan I was glad to see juice options and oatmeal.
Cons: Possibly the worst resort I've ever stayed in. The bedrooms haven't been updated in 30 years. The bed itself was the most uncomfortable hotel bed I've ever experienced. The resort staff were unfriendly and obviously unhappy working here. The casino was so sad and completely empty. The pool was filthy. This resort advertised such beautiful photos but they were completely misleading. The food is overpriced. The ambience of the whole resort is just sad and tired. We left after one night and found a much better resort in Oyster Bay for the same price.
