As you've most likely read from the other reviews, the location for this hotel is great (a few short steps to the beach) and the landscaping on the property is beautiful! Another thing you've most likely read is that the rooms are less then spectacular. All of the above is accurate as of this posting (6/16/14).
- Easy access to the beach
- Plenty of beach chairs for guest's use only
- Beautiful property
- A tiki bar with a bartender (Amy) who can make a mean margarita!
- The rooms. They are old, the furniture is quite dated and the style is a mix of pacific island meets hotel furniture outlet.
My final verdict is that this is a great place to stay so long as your goal is to be outside, and you only need your room to crash in. (Which is kind of the point in a vacation)
