Having spent a good deal of time choosing a hotel to stay for Christmas with family we weren't disappointed.
This hotel is in the perfect location, right on the beach, 2 mins from Lincoln with its restaurants and stores the same distance from Ocean and a 10 min walk down to the stores and restaurants around 5th on Collins.
As we were there for 8nights we had booked a room with a balcony for us and a normal room for the kids so we had somewhere to sit in the evening as a family before dinner. The kids actually preferred to sit here during the day as it was quite peaceful. My only gripe was that these rooms have no bath just a shower and you cant get more than one person in the bathroom at a time. The rest of the room was well fitted and comfortable. Could be a touch noisy if your neighbours are boisterous as there are interconnecting doors that don't barrier any sound.
Coffee and Tea in the mornings at reception, a hosted wine evening at 5pm and hot chocolate in the evening were all nice touches. The bar and reception area are great, spacious and relaxing. The pool area is big for such a small hotel so although busy we managed to get sun beds each day. A walk along the beach will show you that the bigger hotels have similar outside space with a lot more people and quite often their terraces were in the shade due to the size of the hotel building.
This is one of the nicest things here, so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. In particular Brent at the front desk was very efficient but I didn't find one grumpy staff member.
So, what were the negatives if any, we did have to wait for our room which wasn't ready until 4.30 pm. The kids room was cleaned very late one day and we got bitten by mosquitoes on the balcony (take repellant).
All minor complaints though as this is a great hotel it has character and if you are a Kimpton member free Wifi which is a real bugbear of mine when hotels charge to use it.
