We stayed for 2 nights.Location was fantastic and the view is beyond what we could ask for.The staffs were friendly and the room wasnt updated but big enough for a family of 4(2 adults and 2 kids).It was good to start a day with free continental breakfast.Kids loved the bagel and juicy oranges.We enjoyed the stay!

First off there is no parking near the hotel. The staff is very very rude, laying on the beach and had a question. The front desk made me get off the relaxing beach to come inside to talk about my issue! Rude rude rude! The toilet was broken and after calling for help, no one ever came. The shower made...

Private beach was well maintained, front desk...

The layout of the room is awful. The beds as soon as you come in? They should've been closer to the balcony so we wouldn't have to listen to all the noise outside our room. The table was dirty, and the picture on the wall had visible handprints all over it. The coffee pot (no filters) didn't work and leaked...

It was clean and there is nothing wrong with it but it's just average, not luxury. The beds are small, they are doubles not queens and are in the front room (not the room overlooking the beach) then there is a hallway with a small kitchen which I really liked, then the back room was overlooking the beach but it...

So, I'll start out with the positive things about the hotel. The hotel is in a really convenient location. It's close to lots of shopping, the pier, and restaurants. The outside of the property is clean and the hotel sits right on the beach with all ocean front rooms. When we first got here, around 2pm, we were greeted by...
