This hotel was awful. No water pressure, room wasnt clean,ac dripped everywhere,ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING, if you leave dont expect to repark. Front desk was no help, all they could manage was Im sorry. Was put in an upstairs room, even tho we specified handicap,the door wasnt secure. Overall, it was bad, real bad.

We didn't stay here at Wanna Wanna but had lunch outside with the view of the beach and rented chairs & an umbrella. The staff, atmosphere, and food was good. No complaints at all and will be back during our next vacation.

The bathrooms were clean and adequate. Had a good bar with live music and lots of people, but the rooms were still quiet. Good outside bar with good food and... More
