I normally don't leave reviews for anything but this place is just terrible.To begging with, the place is in a very nice spot and this is why decided to stay there, although we should have payed attention to the reviews.

Sits right at the beach. Watch the kite surfers and have a nice meal. A nice menu, great service and reasonable prices for the location! And they get extra points because later that afternoon I went to pay for coffee at another location and had left my credit card behind. A call to the restaurant confirmed they had it and...

On the positive side it was very clean, the staff was pleasant and accommodating. It was on the beach and the view from the deck/restaurant was beautiful. First reason I was disappointed is the listing mad it look like there would be a view from the room, instead the room had NO windows. Then at check in you are forced...

Dear Ms. McCord, Thank you for your frank and direct feedback. We appreciate that You are highlighting certain issues, we are in the process of correcting.

Beautiful view, relaxing atmosphere and great food! We almost didn't come because of a bad review but our service was great and we loved the place! They have really good appetizers, burgers and entrees. The prices were good and even better that at nearby places.

Service was ok, restaurant was a bit pricey, although had beach view - great breakfasts.No parking, no elevator that I remember (stayed on second floor). Portion of beach in front of hotel has a sand bar/rip currents, not a good idea to go swimming right there, but you can walk a couple minutes in any direction and its fine.

A little food served for $60.00 was to expensive, the mofongo with shrimp we ordered I had to clean the guts out, which was nasty and really turned me off, the place is regular not classical, has a good view of the ocean, don't have much to say about this place, I really didn't like it.

Top prime beachfront location! You can sleep with the sound of the waves! Friendly staff, in house restaurant, beach chairs and towel facilities and confortable and spacious rooms. It just steps away from the water! There's no parking in the property; you have to park on the street.
