First the location. Just two lanes of traffic from the beach made the location perfect. La Quinta provides chaise lounges for you at the beach and I had no difficulty securing one of the shaded umbrella areas. But you must take a bus or cab everywhere. And that in and of itself makes the location inconvenient. Admittedly the bus stop was quite close to LaQuinta and taxis arrived fairly quickly once called by the front desk. The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable but the bath was tired and in need of a makeover. Both pools were a pleasure and it was a nice surprise to find out that the automatic bar charge has been eliminated. But the wi-fi was $25. And there are daily taxes on the room even with a time-share exchange. The staff at La Quinta were universally friendly and helpful, especially the front desk lady and our housekeeper. Despite the 'but's' I would probably stay there again.
