Stayed here twice now. August 2012 and November 2012. First time with wife and two teenage daughters in a pool/ocean view room and a second time with my father in an ocean front room.
Walk through the pool area onto the strand and beach.
This hotel is for the true beach and ocean lover. Great resaurant/bar next door for breakfast, lunch, dinner and coctails. Plenty of casual dining and lots of shops within walking distance. Coffee and light breakfast in the lobby if you're in an hurry.
If you want room service and valet parking for your Ferrari, this is not your place. If you want a perfect location on the beach for a couple hundred bucks a night this is definitely it. We're so happy we've already booked one of the ocean front rooms for the last week of July and the first week of August 2013.
