It was a nice place. It was clean and staff were nice. The service was OK and the rooms were clean when we got there. We got to do late check out and they were nice about it. I was a little confused on the process but still it worked out.

This place is a run down condominium where some owners have decided to rent their apartments as hotel rooms. The front desk staff are courteous, and the hotel is in fact located on the beach. However, do not expect an ocean view or 3 star hotel service. Our room was facing the ocean but it did not have regular windows...

The surrounding environment is very nice and tourism. It is just behind the beach, perfect for a holiday with friends or family. They have free valet parking, which is great, because its hard to find parking on the beach.

Guy checking us in did a great job and was very helpful. Also close to beach access. Valet parking is nice. Free parking is a big deal here. You have to pay to park where ever you go. Very pretty in the main lobby area. Security desk is very helful.

We booked this hotel on Hotels.com Price is 50% less there. It took about 90 minutes to check in. Room was not ready. They just lie about when it will be ready.

The place is good but the personnel are very impolite they ask you for a resort fee and when you go to ask for a towel they don't have one, the security personnel very rude and the valet not too bad. I asked for a room with sea view and I get the room but not with the king size...

Do not be fooled by the pictures of this hotel. I expected a clean, bright room, but got a dirty, almost seedy room. I'd compare the quality to a youth hostel rather than a hotel. It really is a shame, because with a little bit of effort, this could be a great spot to go with your family.

I booked this room through booking.com with that being said it wasn't that bad. It seems more like a renovated apartment building than any thing our room had no tub but a shower.
