Quite literally a few hundred feet from the beach. Staff was very helpful, and although I didn't use any of the spa services, the menu for these services was ample and I'm sure it would have been great. The pool is large and there are plenty of cabanas and other loungers and chairs. I only had a basic room with two beds but the room has a great bathroom with a large walk-in shower. Air conditioning was perfect, and the room service staff were phenomenal. If you're planning a day at the beach and you would rather walk than drive I would highly recommend this property. It is well worth the price.

Although this property is not "on" the beach, it is across a major roadway with a crosswalk. There is no direct access to a sandy beach, but the hotel has a service to transport people to one. Regardless, the hotel offered everything I wanted (I'm not a beach person). My room had a balcony with a view of the ocean. The pool was great with a zero entry for kids. The restaurant offered good fare, but there's also a snack area, which is a good alternative. The hotel offered several rentals such as beach chairs, umbrellas and bicycles with helmets. All in all, a very relaxing luxurious stay. Highly recommended.
