The best experience I have had on the coast yet. View from the room was wonderful and you could hear the ocean waves. Love that hotel is extremely dog friendly. All the staff was friendly and would greet you anytime they saw you

We love staying at the Cavalier! The room is always clean and the sound of the ocean waves relaxing. The staff is friendly and efficient and the onsite restaurant is wonderful. The peace and quiet is what we come for and we've not been disappointed....More

The rooms are not super fancy and up to date but they were clean, staff was great and the location is gorgeous! You are paying for the beach access, ocean view and the fire pits are a bonus for sure..

The area is gorgeous but pretty remote I don't recall a spa. The hotel has amazing views and wonderful fire pits along the beach area.
