We spent a few nights at the Andrea this month. We had an ocean front room, the balcony was great, but previous reviews about the size of the room are definitely correct. Our room was small, bathroom very small,, but both were very clean.. We came for the beach,, so didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room anyway, so weren't to disappointed. The balcony was directly over the outdoor seating section of the restaurant,,, and we didn't find the music to loud while we were there. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful when we had questions. The beach was wonderful, gets pretty crowded during the day. Had lunch at the restaurant and breakfast one morning, lunch was very good, breakfast buffet is your standard issue buffet, but again no complaints.Bar outside at the restaurant, and a large bar inside,, drinks were good. We walked the beach and noticed the other hotels there that were also right on the water,, many of them seemed older, so not sure if there would have been a dramatic difference had we chosen one of them. One complaint I did have were moths,,,they were everywhere, including in our room!! The ocean front balconies have big spot lights attached at the bottom of them to light up the restaurant/beach area, so I'm assuming that's why there were so many. Sitting on the deck at night was a little disconcerting with them flying all over the place. Some folks left their doors open during the day to their decks(there are no screens), and I did not leave ours open, because I didn't want any moths flying in,,,but they got in anyway...I would loved to have had a screen on the door, so we didn't need the air conditioner on and could hear the ocean. We were there midweek so noise from night time entertainment didn't bother us. If you're looking for a place right on the beach,and don't mind a small room,, this will fit the bill...
