Directly on the beach, can look out of the back window and see your umbrella and beach chairs. Left umbrella out over night, and it was fine. Room was a bit small and dated, but it was clean, and everything worked. The two elevators were fast, which is a big help when people are going out to the beach often. Two Bar-B-Q pits and picnic tables were provided. Can walk to many attractions, like the Hangout, Pink Pony, Souvenir City, Alvin's Island, Surf Style, Purple Octopus. Two excellent seafood restaurants, Bahama Bob's & DeSoto's are also within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again.
