This hotel was lovely. It was clean and absolutely beautiful, right on the beach.The plush landscaping was really nice and enjoyable. You are paying for location, the rooms are average. One small spa, and average size pool which are both overrun with kids nowdays. I suggest a room facing the beach. Even though the one we had was at the far left end so we had a constant view of kayak lessons every day. Hundreds of them, from very early until dusk. The first couple days it's cool- different and fun to watch, but by day 3 we would have just liked to see the water. The staff was good, no complaints. You just call the desk and they set up chairs and an umbrella in the sand for your enjoyment. The beach rooms are not private, this is a main drag for beach goers and people walk by all day and night, and can see in your room. The one complaint I have is the bed. It was like a lumpy bag of rocks. VERY uncomfortable, and cause pain in our back and hips from night one. Upon checkout I informed the desk and was told they had just replaced the foundations and mattresses. Not buying it. And if that were true, they got them from a cheap warehouse. I have stayed at many budget hotels with much more comfortable beds. What almost makes up for that(not quite) is the free shuttle service to town. It was WONDERFUL! The guys were nice and polite, they took us where we wanted to go, and even though it was a holiday weekend we never had to wait more than 10 min. for the shuttle. A great perk. The restaurant on this property is another story. Nothing good to say. Food way over priced and terrible. I would have a pizza delivered before ordering from room service.
