The hotel is directly on the beach with gulf view and gulf front rooms. The rooms are spacious with a long balcony, living area with sofa that opens to a queen size bed, bedroom with king size bed and bathroom with tub and great shower (other than the shower is kind of geared to short people). The rooms were clean. The staff was very friendly and helped with recommendations for dinner/drinks. You can easily walk to many restaurants and bars. Take your own beach chairs and umbrella unless you want to pay $30 a day to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella.
