Pleasantly surprised by Hilton A review of Omphoy Ocean Resort
My friend and I just came back from a long weekend at the Hilton. We had purchased rooms for $90 a night on Priceline, and when we looked up reviews on Trip Advisor we were nervous! However, thankfully, we ended up being pleasantly surprised.--though we would have been annoyed to if we paid what some of the other reviewers did! While the service is not a 4-star level, overall the staff were very nice and helpful. One of the bell hops was kind of rude, but the other guys were great. The hotel is right on the beach, and the restaurants overlook the ocean.
Yes, it's annoying that you have to pay a rental fee for beach chairs and umbrellas, but I think this is par for the course on the beach.
While our room was not ocean front, we still had a view of the ocean.
If you want to splurge, book a spa service at the Four Seasons next door and you can have free access to the spa facilities (whirlpool, fitness center, sauna, and steam room)...but do not book a spa pedicure because it is not worth the price. Try a massage instead. Don't miss John G's on the Beach, an awesome place for breakfast that has been written up in Zagat and many other restaurant guides--a short 5-minute walk from the hotel.
