This year my husband picked the little cabins that are at the corner block by the highway. When we first arrived I was a bit worried about the noise, but after being...

Although this hotel has been around for a long time, it was in great shape! The room was spacious and very clean. The entire housekeeping staff spoke to us whenever we encountered them. They were very pleasant. We also enjoyed the outdoor bar and live music. Great staff overall.

We stayed in a one bedroom condo that was nice, clean, comfortable and just a short minute walk or so to the beach, pool, or office. We were on the 2nd floor with a balcony with a side view of...

Great location right on the beach with a large pool and outdoor restaurant/ bar.
