The place has beautiful view of the beach. It is right on the beach so one can actually enjoy it.It is a bit expensive and the room is so small with no beach towel provided. You pay for the view for sure. Not a lot of food in the surrounding area and restaurant food are very expensive. Otherwise , it was a good stay.

Easy beach access, but the room was dated with articles from previous occupants left inside on counters and behind dresser.

It was good with great view. When I booked, it did not give me any option to book room with Ocean view. When I got there, reception said that there is no room available with Ocean View which was kind of disappointing.

We are really disappointed in our room. I paid $$$$ for the “deluxe” Oceanside room to treat my elderly aunt who doesn’t get to go anywhere. The view was amazing but the room was dark outdated and tiny. Nothing like the picture, no amenities in the room or on site. Not even a glass for a drink of tap water. I had to go to the lobby to get a cup. It’s is during Covid, which I understand to a certain extent. However they should not be charging top dollar. We stayed at two other places along the coast that cost way less that had more . both of which gave us a cup of coffee and a glass of water. Don’t waste your money. There are better options.
