The rooms have this beautiful view to the ocean and the gardens and pavements are well maintained and well lit in the night. Looks like a runaway in the night. Their food is awesome... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully present dinner. Room are tastefully furnished with a big bathroom. Beach in walking distance and a few swimming pools to choose from overlooking the pools and ocean.. Make sure about price as we where charged USD100 for additional person sharing a room. Found it a rip off..

Just want to lie by their Olympic-size pool on their comfy lounge chairs and fluffy towels and chill all day. Then order some lunch, swim, relax. Absolute bliss. The beach in the background is lovely but only really worth for a brief walk. Why venture anywhere, it's all here!

I was in Ocean beach late October for my honeymoon and the experience was delightful.The place is beautiful, quiet and very friendly staff. The breakfast was wonderful and the rooms tastefully finished. I couldn't ask for more. Sadly there were so few guests and the place appeared deserted. I hope the security situation gets better for many more to enjoy... More
