We selected this hotel for two reasons. We wanted a hotel with a cruise shuttle service/parking and close proximity to the ocean with ocean views. Upon arrival we were offered porter service and took advantage.We were placed in a room on the second floor overlooking the pool with a spectacular ocean view. We could hear the crashing waves on the balcony. We were worried about noise from the bar/nightclub, but we figured after a 15 hour drive we would sleep soundly. We were awoke from the booming bass of the nightclub shortly before they closed. We were able to return soundly asleep. The room was clean, even for a smoking room, there was not that overpowering stench of stale smoke. Did not eat in the restaurant instead sampling local fare.
