Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and my in-laws for a family reunion. We stayed in one of the cottages and it was very comfy and clean. The kitchen was a bit outdated, but the rest of the cottage was great. The beach was very clean and the attendants would come bring you chairs and umbrellas when you asked.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in an oceanfront room. The staff were amazing. First day spent by the pool went to have lunch from beach-side cafe at 3:10pm. Found out they closed at 3:00 but the manager had them throw on a grilled cheese for my daughter which was much appreciated. Ordered delivery from Sweet Tomatoes of dinner, then when... More

The rooms were a bit outdated (no microwave or flat-screen TV), but that's not necessary. Room was free using credit card reward program so I cannot complain. The service was nice and the staff members were very happy-seeming. I'd return for an off-season price!

We had an ocean front room, spacious room, but very dated. Beds and linens badly need updating. The pillows and linens are the style from years ago, you will ache for a good nights sleep. The pool is right outside so it may be quite noisy during busy periods. It suited our needs but I would not return, and certainly... More

I visited the property for two nights. I wasn't expecting much of the room itself. It was clean but very basic. It is ocean front, so it has incredible views.
