It felt pretty clean overall. The sheets were a bit scratchy for my taste, but I brought my own blanket and that seemed to help. Overall, it felt very clean. The check-in process what a bit daunting considering there was a mile-long line at around 3:45 when we decided to get a head start

We arrived to the property early before check in. The hotel reception gave us our beach badges early so that we could relax on the beach while our room was being prepared.

Loved the location and being able to see the beach/ocean. The internet connection was slow to non existent. A bathroom window wouldn't close properly and cold air would come in. Clean and the service was friendly.

For the price paid, furniture and amenities were very disappointing. Not even a small coffeemaker. Three clothing hangers! Bed was comfortable. Ability to charge two phones...no. Will not return.

There were absolutely no amenities. We rented 2 rooms and the bathroom tiles were peeling off and falling in the tub as we showered. I think the floors were not washed since the beginning of the summer. There was dirt and sand under the beds. Housekeeping would not change the sheets. After 2 days of overflowing garbage I had to go find them to empty it. I stayed 6 days with an air conditioner that had a big red light to clean the filter, I told them the first day I was there. There was no coffe pot or microwave, I had to buy my own. It was close to $2000 per room for my stay and I could kick myself for staying there. Also everyday we would ask for beach towels and they told us everyday there were none clean. If was a horrible experience.

The one good thing is it was right on the beach and we got beach badges. Did not look anything like the website. There are different units shown. We were in the old one across the parking lot and street from newer unit on website. Staff were all nice even though they could see our disappointment in the hotel. Traffic noise constant. I would not stay there again.

I really like the fact that this place was on the beach and so close to the beach and had a great beachy feel , I also really liked the staff and people working there they were very pleasant and responsive to your needs. THe parking was ample and easy. the rooms were very clean and had a refrigerator microwave. the floors in the room seems to be a hardwood of some type which sounds like a sonic boom and relly radiates noise if you walk hard and here comes my disappointment. this property in two levels up and down i was on the bottom floor and guest came in last at night like 2am and dropped stuff on the floor walking back and forth hard so i was awaken several times during the late night and very early like 6am by upstairs guest.and if they have children it can be worse. this is the reason i gave ita low score maybe they should consider another type of material for the flooring . The sole purpose of vacation is to relax and get a good night sleep to enjoy the next day ,unfortunately this did not happen. I don't blame the staff for inconsiderate guest . As the saying goes you get what you pay for.
