We stayed in unit 357 which was a 2-bedroom penthouse with a rooftop jacuzzi and barbecue area. It was spacious and nicely decorated with a nice size balcony. It was an oceanfront view but a small one. Although we ate out, the kitchen was fully equipped with all the essentials for cooking and making drinks. There was daily housekeeping. We... More
