I read the reviews and heard good things about the Wanna Wanna, but was terribly disappointed when I had to cancel my reservation. I checked their website again and could not find the 3 day cancellation policy. I tried to cancel the day before our arrival and management refused to credit our card. SO, JUST A WARNING !!

Situated right next to the beach, this small hotel has rooms with fridges, microwaves, and ensuite bathrooms, on two levels. Most bedrooms had standard doors but ours had sliding door for entry - and the lock was so worn that the key wiggled up and down 45 degrees in the lock, and was difficult to lock/unlock. The bed was comfortable... More

We stay at Wanna Wanna every year for the 4th of July weekend. We always get great service. The front desk (Junior) tries to accommodate us in every way he possibly can however when the rooms are in such desperate need for updates, it is hard for him to do anything. Shower pressure was non-existent. The pressue was worse (if... More

Made reservation and room wasn't ready so I was given a great room with siding windows toward the Beach, Swimming Pool & Outside Bar view. Great Room. Had a great time while I was there, Outside Bar had Live Music and music was great.

Was looking for small, friendly hotel on the beach, but also with views of the beach. Wannawanna is small (about 15 rooms), everyone very friendly. It is right on the beach. For me, other than the friendliness, the main draw was the chairs on the balcony from which one could view the ocean. The common area around the bar/restaurant is... More

Had a friend suggest staying here. What a great choice! Can't beat being right on the beach with a bar and restaurant right there. Rooms are clean, nothing fancy, but just what you want when you're hanging at the beach! The bands were great, and you can hear them if you go to bed early, but they only play until... More
