Not worth the price. The pillows were the worst ever. They were like rocks. No Kleenex. The only redeeming thing was the beach and the view.

Ocean view great. Room good -- be advised that there is no daily room service for extended stay and there is not a way to keep the tile floors clean from sand -- bring a swiffer with you. Yet when I asked for a service --- they did what I asked.

Iiked location and view. Liked front desk staff. Did not like: condition of room, shabby, peeling paint, faded bedspreads and upholstery. Cleaning staff did not clean up or come to room. Beds not made, coffee service not replenished, pirch chairs full of sand and bird poop. Not worth $250 per night.

The best ocean view.. The property is a bit dated so room rate seemed high,,,,, but the view is Awesome:) Unit could have been cleaner better sanitized, given the Pandemic. The Refrigerator in the unit leaked onto the floor. It was not working when I checked but I did not want to be charged so I am reporting it now. Will stay again for the view. Thank you.
