As the title states managing expectations is the key to deciding if this place is for you or not.
It is a basic slightly run-down average place with close access to the beach and walking distance to bars and restaurants.
Good: Beach access, pools, price
Bad: Nothing outstandingly bad. No deal beakers, except maybe the rowdy tenants, but definite inconveniences. Such as, minimal towels, no dish soap, missing knobs, no place to hang clothes.
This place rents out as full-time living quarters, so there was a group of rowdy people, that liked to crank the karaoke and boisterous attitudes pretty late (after midnight) the whole week we were there. There may be a quieter wing, but this didn't really bother us much since we are night owls ourselves, but it was noticeable.
The maids were very stingy with the towels. Got only 1 bath towel and 2 small ones for 2 adults. No bath mat and no washcloths. Asked for more and got them, but the next day they were gone and not been replenished. So asked for more and hid them in the dresser drawer and reused them, we do this at home anyway, so not a big deal. Also we had packed a few extra beach towels, so this really was more of a game by the end of the week.
Place is run down, there were knobs missing on the dresser, and no bar or hangers in the closet. Again we improvised, swapped a knob from the night stand ourselves, and all our stuff was dresser stuff anyway, so we folded everything and used the closet cupboard for shoes and dirty laundry. No alarm clock, but my cell phone had one. Tiny TV and fuzzy channels, but only caught news updates before bed, and hubby looked for a couple sports updates, so didn't really matter. Again these things aren't deal beakers for us, but they may be for others.
So if you are looking for a budget friendly place close to everything, and you can look past the shabby this may be for you. If you have the budget and like a few more amenities you probably won't like it here.
If you need quiet, go higher up, and away from the beach bar at the pool.
