Here for three nights on business. The entrance/reception has a colonial feel with rattan ceiling fans, columns etc. The restaurant has a large outside terrace area and the pool area can only be described as tropical. There's direct access to the beach across the boardwalk. It's about a 25 min brisk walk down the board walk into the start of the bars/restaurants. The upside to this is that the beach by the hotel isn't so busy. Would I visit again - yes (if someone else was paying) - $250 a night wouldn't encourage a long holiday.
