Just fresh off our trip (2/20-2/23). We stayed in suite 1 and at first, I was a little put off by the huge, looming deck recently built, and entirely blocking the view to the beach. Then to top it off, the hotel made it very difficult for guests to go up to this deck and to the connected bar/restaurant.
That being said, it was a great place to stay. The room was large yet cozy, a big, flat screen TV, and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed long walks on the beach and wasting away on the deck of our room in the sun. As for the new deck, I warmed up to it. We loved the hours we spent on it people watching in the sun with drinks from the bar. The food was typical bar food and we only ate there once, but it was some of the best fried shrimp we ever had.
Other drawbacks, no soap provided in the room???? We had to go out and buy our own. Also, there is no in-room coffee. They have a coffee station, but then you're at the mercy of whoever made coffee before you got there.
No place is perfect, but this was simply a lovely, lazy stay and completely enjoyable. We won't hesitate going back.
