We found this hotel through a guide 6 years ago and have been going back ever since.
Their oceanfront efficiencies are perfect with full size refrigerator and coffee maker and a reasonable sized microwave. I must admit we almost never cook but it is such a convience to have a refrigerator large enough to store cheese and wine and some other snack and lunch foods. What a pleasure to watch the sun rise over the ocean from your own private balcony snuggled in your robe with a fresh brewed cup of coffee in one hand and a croissant in the other.
The rooms and bathrooms are a comfortable size, attractively decorated and very clean. I like the new in room safes that are large enough to put my laptop in.
The pools are always sparkling and the palmetto palms add that extra special ambiance. The addition of the pool side bar and grill has been a plus. We are not big on the grill but many others seem to be. It is nice to sit by the pool with good book and a frozen pina colada. Other days it is just nice to sit or walk by the ocean and look for dolphins or watch the parasailors. The beach here is always clean and it is the perfect size big enough but not so big you feel it is a hike to the water. We have always found the ocean water to be clean too.
We generally visit in Fall. This is the place to come to just get away from everything and relax. I would offer two tips. Ask for a room above the 4th floor. Sometimes those beautiful palmettos get in the way of the view a bit and there is a great Food Lion a couple of blocks away that sells the wonderful croissants.
