Stayed here two nights. We had a room facing the pool. The windows do not close so you can hear everything outside very clearly. In our first room we did not have a doorknob on the inside of the door. Just a little hole where one should be. The door was warped and didn't fit well and we had a... More

I found the staff very friendly and the rooms very nice and cleaned daily. The beds were not very comfortable and the... More

The restaurant staff was friendly and very accomodating. Beautiful outdoor pool and sitting area. Free computer use in the reception area. The rooms aren't anything fancy for what you pay, but the outdoor atmosphere and beach front location is what makes this hotel.
