Can anyone list pros and cons of each?
I'm sure it varies according to which cottage. I see that Sand Castle is gay friendly and Cottages by the Sea might have more families. I'm OK either way with that. I did a search and found few comments indicating road noise is a problem at some of Sand Castle's rooms and that the walls are paper thin. However, some of that info was quite dated and I understand Sand Castle has new owners who have been doing renovations.
On the whole, is one fancier than the other?
Differences in strong a/c, hot water? Did read one post about no hot water that concerned me quite a bit. Thanks!
