Just came back from a relaxing weekend at south beach place. We chose it first because we could bring our dog without getting high extra charges. The rooms are across the street from the beach but it is a dead end street. Beach is beautiful and quiet. We enjoyed watching the crabs on the beach. No we never got bitten because they run from people. We tried to show my kids the crabs the next night and couldn't find any.
The rooms in the hotel/ motel are like little apts. they have a separate bedroom and a living area with kitchen. There are only 18 rms and they face the pool. Property is lush with beautiful plants and lots of places to sit. They even have a barbecue near the pool. You can't hear noise from other rms or the pool. Our children joined us and enjoyed their rm too. It was great having a later check out . We will be going back. We felt like family by the time we left.
