I have to rate it sub-average because they charged us a 6$/night resort fee. This is not a resort, it's a hotel. Sure, it sits on the beach, but the pool and beach access were closed during our stay. Sure, our room had a balcony, which gave us the nicest view (and hearing) of the hotel's rooftop and HVAC compressors. Even with the patio door closed we could still hear the loud compressors. We kept the fan during to be able to sleep (constant sound). They also gave us a room with 2 double-beds instead of a King or at least queen (we were travelling as a couple) and when we asked the front desk about changing rooms, they sounded annoyed by the fact they would have to send the housekeeping crew in case we soiled anything. The staff was polite, but made us feel like a bother. We ended up staying in the initial room because of their reaction, and the beds were really just "OK", not terrible but not comfortable either. Everything else was fine, typical average hotel. Clean bathroom and everything (faucets, etc) worked fine. The 6$ resort fee (unjustified, even more so since the pool and beach access were closed) and the bed situation is what sunk my rating to below-average.
