There was a kitchen but no dishes. Only one set of towels. You get what you pay for. It is right on the beach. The chairs they show in the picture are rentals from someone on the beach. The pool is nice with lots of chairs. Nice sitting area outside

There was a no smoking policy, yet people thought they could stand by our gate and smoke,stub their butt out on the railing and drop in sand. The vents between our room And the next room you could here each other. The bedroom window you could Hear people as they walked by, other then that the room was clean and staff very helpful and perfect view of ocean, I would stay there again

The hotel was fine. Nothing great. It definitely needs to be updated. The room had a weird layout. We had ants all over the kitchen. Cleaned them up once. They came back. Had to go downstairs to the front desk to tell them. They sent house keeping up to spray them. We lost a few beverages due to ants being on them. We couldn’t keep anything in the kitchen because of it. I wouldn’t stay there again.

The front staff is WONDERFUL! Helpful and friendly. Can not beat the view. The breezeway is such a nice touch to enjoy your coffee/beer and watch the water.

Thank you for the great review BRIT. The breezeway you mentioned is one of our features that make it unique and beautiful. The proximity to the beach is amazing. Again thank you for staying with us and we cannot wait until you come back and visit.

I was on the first level - just a few steps to the beach. Proximity to beach is the best amenity. Unit on first level facing the pool - fairly noisy from people splashing and conversing loudly even at late evening. Housekeeping staff was great! I was in a one-bedroom unit with plenty of space. Heat and A/C worked well and quietly. Kitchen-nook has only refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and sink. I would stay there again.

Employees were very welcoming and always greeted you with a smile. They also keep travel sized items in case you forgot to pack anything. At one point we needed plastic plates and utensils and they provided those for us also. They pretty much have though of everything and will make your stay as comfortable as possible. The beach is right outside the hotel and the pool was nice as well.

This hotel is right on the beach. It is showing a bit of age but the staff is currently renovating it. The room we stayed in had pink toilet and sink but everything was in working condition. The pool was heated and very warm.
