There were suppose to be 16 rooms reserved for the team but somehow they managed to screw it up. My son and his roommates did not have a room to stay in the first night.... More

Staff was very friendly and service was excellent. Hotel lobby,pool area, and rooms were clean and very comfortable. Continental breakfast was great! No need for driving, just across the street from the beach. Many dining options to chose from, beside the ones at hotel lobby which were great, too and all walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
