The rooms were very clean and super close to the beach. My only one complaint is that there were no wash clothes in the room and when asked for some was told they don’t have any. I found this very odd.

Probably the best beachfront hotel I’ve stayed at. The pool was open though it was crowded and masks were recommended and required when ordering overpriced tacos and normal priced cocktails. I loved how the hotel was decorated. Blue 1960s beach theme i guess. The hallway walking down from the elevator ...
