The location was excellent. The hotel staff very courteous and helpful. The rooms were very nice. Being right on the beach was excellent for walking and sunsets. I will definitely stay here again. I will tell all my family and friends.

My Husband and I came back to this special hotel for the week of thanksgiving! After having such a hard year we needed to get away and relax! It was even better this time. The ocean view was so beautiful and so close you felt like you could touch it!
