"Cabana 13 has great views but be aware of loud water pump in the back, and of possibly loud neighbors on top."
"Second story room in the central building has a fabulous private balcony with an ocean view."
"The rooms in the "garden view" are cheaper and only a few steps away from the "ocean view" rooms."
"Very nice verandas if you can get one of the beachfront cabanas."
"Free wifi is available as long as you're close to the office."
