The rooms on the second or third floor are most desirable especially the ones facing the pool. The room on the first... More

This hotel is fabulous. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The pool is fantastic and with the ocean right behind it you can hear the waves break while in the pool. The food is also top notch. Lots of fresh seafood well prepared and delicious.

I spent a lovely week at the resort as part of my daughter's wedding at the end of April. Originally we were booked in a room on the top level facing the parking lot. The room was clean and very comfortable but found it was somewhat noisy from the roof top air conditioning system. I am a light sleeper and... More

The hotel is average, older than what it shows on the picture. Staffs are pleasant. If you hope to spend a week enjoying sea and beach...Look at somewhere else. !. Sea is too dangerous to have a swim, people have to stay close to the shore. 2. You want to lie on the beach? Run at 7am with your towel,... More

We are deeply sorry that your experience at the resort did not live up to your expectations. To address some of your comments: 1)The Pacific Ocean is like any other large body of water, constantly changing due to the influence of tides, winds, weather and currents. At times the waves are forceful and can even be dangerous for all but... More

We found the resort to be accommodating, clean, friendly and very relaxing. Harry was marvelous -- he was the most friendly person at the resort and all other staff can take a good lesson from him to make the guests feel welcome. We enjoyed our stay.

I booked through Expedia and they offered standard rooms and standard pool view rooms for an additional cost. I booked the pool view. Upon arrival I was told there is no such thing as standard pool view rooms. They wanted to... More
