The beds were so bad, they were noisy and broken down. The front desk was aware and said they were going to be replaced in October. No offer to change rooms or discount. Room was clean and the breakfast was ok. Close to dining.

Our room was clean and the bed was more comfortable than the bed we slept on in the condo at the beach. The breakfast was good as well. While we didn't swim, we did peak at the pool.... More
