We rented a place here for a week. Very clean and great location. We loved waking out to the beach and listening to the ocean at night. Close to everything you need. The unit was very clean and modern.

Love the cond, very clean and well decorated!! Love the amazing view from the rooftop but the only negative thing is that the hotel needs to do something more about keeping other guests from using the rooftop that is for our room.
