After reading reviews, I was a little skeptical about booking this hotel. But from the day that I arrived until we checked out, it was by far one of the best experiences we had. At first we were given the wrong room. But after I explained the type of room we booked, they were quick to get it fixed without any hesitation. We weren't in our room maybe two minutes before they were calling our room to make sure everything was fine with the room. From other reviews saying that housekeeping never came, all I have to say is this. The first day we forgot our luggage on one of the beds, which didn't get made but everything else was cleaned. That was our fault. The second day we left the "do not disturb" sign on the door and no one came into our room. All of the other times, when we would walk into our room, you could tell just by smelling that they did a very good job at cleaning. The continental breakfast is just what I expected for a smaller hotel. If you want pancakes, eggs, and the works, I'd suggest a fancier hotel. But overall it was a perfect quick breakfast for a grab and go since we were spending our mornings at the beach. The view is amazing. The only real complaint I have is when going in and out onto the balcony, if it's super windy, it has a tendency to slam the door on the railing if you don't keep a hold of it. And the staff were super friendly and helpful. This will be our go to every year from here on out!!

The staff was so friendly. We were great with smiles and pleasant conversation. They were also very accommodating because we arrived two hours before check in but they let us go ahead and check in. The hotel is simple but it was comfortable, clean, and had everything that we needed. The beach and pool were clean and well kept. It was a lovely stay and I will definitely return in the future.

The receptionist was not very informative of the situation because there was an error in our booking at the hotel. She just wasn’t explaining what was going on or how she was trying to fix it. She did send us to another hotel owner by the same company to fix the booking situation.
