The good: Directly on the beach, walk from most rooms right out to the beach, sit on porch and a enjoy the view, also a good place if you like to watch the planes fly by close overhead. Rooms have full kitchenettes w\ fridge. Free wifi.
The bad: (The beware part) If you book here and pre-pay they have a no refund policy. We attempted to cancel one of the days (3 days advance notice) & they would not allow this change, (so we paid $230+ for a night we were not there, low season & the hotel was empty) also after staying a few days if you want to cancel \change hotels they won’t refunded any pre-paid money. (Most hotels at least will allow a cancel\refund if you at least stay one night) Not here! I spoke directly with the manager & I she would not budge on this. So, make sure you really want to stay here if you book it as you will be stuck! For the price of this room you would think it would be nicer. Walls had holes, towel were ripped and falling apart, (see my pics) bathroom door would not shut & scrapped against the wall, the tv did not work the entire time (even with repeated efforts from the staff to resolve.) If you think you will want to watch any tv do not get rm 16. It’s the last room on the end of their satellite feed and it does not reach. Door has the slats that don’t stay closed & there is no curtain so people can look in and see directly into your room. Pool was dirty. If the price was lower this hotel would be an ‘acceptable’ place since its right on the beach, but not at this price tag! With all the hotel offerings around I would choose another hotel.
