We rented a king size bed unit with a futon for our son, booking it over the phone. I'll never do that again...the lady who booked us said it was really nice, bigger than her room on site, and that we'll like it. After arriving and booking in, we went to the room and were pretty surprised that was the description she made of that room. It was smaller than any hotel room we've ever stayed in...that first night we learned how to rearrange the furniture so the broken futon could fold all the way out. The dishes, and especially the utensils were dirty and the bathroom was very tiny and we wore flip flops to take showers. The kitchen was equipped with 3 plates, only one bowl, one fork and a few knives and spoons. We asked for some more cutlery and a couple bowls, and we got the cutlery (dirty) and some styrofoam bowls. The a/c unit was new, but was really noisy so much so that we had to turn it off when we made phone calls. The two seater table in the unit had a bunch of beach sand under the doily table cloth, and a sizeable dead beetle on the floor by the futon, we discovered the first day. As much as the people there are pleasant, I would never recommend the place to anyone. We booked it because of the good reviews it got, and we understand older hotels have certain characteristics, but the unit was too dirty for us to stay the full time we were booked for, we left after 4 nights. Someone was coming to look at the unit the day we vacated, and we found out later that the unit was empty for days, so I guess whoever came to look at it decided not to rent it.
The only thing going for it, is the fact that the beach is across the road, but even for beach lovers, buyer beware and check it out if at all possible before you give them a deposit.
