    Is the beach right in front of the hotel crowded? Will sunbathers and walkers disturb the peace and quiet if I have an ocean front room?

    Response from jlp651 | Reviewed this property |
    This is the time of year that the beach can get crowded. The noise level for the rooms on the second floor don't seem to be to bad. The view is worth it.
