Really mixed feelings about this place. Loved it when I first arrived, but my enthusiasm had faded by the time I left several days later.
:: fantastic, wonderful, mesmerizing view of the ocean from the lanai -- so close I could watch the tropical fishies swimming around
:: friendly staff
:: nice, clean pool area next to the ocean, also with a great view
:: comfortable bed
:: morning breakfast of coffee, juice, island fruits, breads and spreads
:: reasonable price
:: the crashing waves, lovely in the daytime, were horrendously loud at night, so loud they mostly blocked out the very loud traffic noises on the street in front of the hotel; I mean, these waves sounded like thunder claps and gale-force winds even with the room shut as tightly as possible; made it very difficult to sleep
:: only so-so on the cleanliness front; the upper surfaces were OK, but walking on the floors made the bottoms of my bare feet quite dirty, every single day
:: some kind of plumbing issue that occasionally caused water to bubble up from the kitchenette sink with a foul odor; one time a bunch of suds bubbled up! Kind of freaked me out. :)
I'm a big fan of quaint, charming, older hotels, so from the reviews I had expected to like it. I didn't mind the no TV or no AC or the dated bathroom or any of that, but the relentless pounding waves all night long made it a not-very-restful stay. The parking was also a bit funky. On the other hand, beach equipment and a barbeque are available for guests to use. All in all, a mixed bag. Loved, loved, loved the view, but not sure I'd stay here again.
Get a room as far from the street as possible and/or bring earplugs.
