Great hotel, right on the beach. The rooms don't have an ocean view and anyone is able to pass through the grounds. But it's still very nice and the location is priceless. I recommend getting a room on the second floor.

The resort protects it's lighting by putting 200 lb rocks in front of some of the lights in the parking lot. These are about a foot high and difficult to see at night.
