We spent the last 4 nights of our road trip at this hotel. It's boutique style with a cosy atmosphere. Some reviews say the rooms are small but only compared to the general US standard. Compared to rooms in Europe, they are quite a good size. There were 4 of us 2 adults and 2 children in a room with 2 beds. The rooms were clean and comfortable, a powerful shower and a good size flat screen TV. Reception was helpful and they recognised Priority Club status. There is free Pepsi, water, tea and coffee available 24-7, a nice touch. The pool was inviting in a courtyard setting with plush sun beds, though a lack of towels at times. A large fridge is provided in the rooms. There is a grocers right next door (Ralph's) which was very handy as you could pop over and bring lunch back to eat on the tables around the pool. Breakfast in the adjoining restaurant (separately managed I believe), was very good, though on returning home, I did notice that although we paid cash for the breakfast, they also charged it to the room (on the last day after I had checked out) so nothing I can do about that. The location, 2 minutes to the beach and about 10 mins to the shops means it is ideally placed. Overall we had a good time at this hotel and recommend it.
