Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for a quick night with my boyfriend, wish we could've stayed longer! Love the decor, especially the fireplace in our room. Nice bath products and very comfy bed.Very spacious room. No views or bathtub, but honestly didn't bother us at all. Very quick walk to beach and lots of great restaurants in Pier Village.

Traveled as a couple, stayed for a quick overnight getaway in November. This hotel is unlike any other, unique furnishings and amenities, reflecting the efforts of the talented designers who created this venue. Very clean, comfortable, staff helpful and accommodating. Price, booked through priceline was very reasonable too. Highly recommended!

Good Morning Lydia, Wishing you a Belated Happy Birthday! Thank you for staying and I am very sorry about your experience on the second day.

Great location, just one block away from the boardwalk some rooms have sea view, we stayed in Aloha and Kahuna rooms. The rooms are great, equipped with a fridge, modern furniture, fireplace and quiet important clean. The beds are cosy and comfortable. The service is impeccable and very friendly. The bar provides great cocktails. We certainly would recommend this hotel

What a pleasant surprise the Bungalow ended up being. Although the website is adequate in giving you the basic information, it definitely falls short in showing the whole picture, imagine that. The hotel is actually nicer than depicted on their website, as opposed to my past experiences in picking a hotel via the internet. The rooms are much larger than...
