This is by no means a luxurious hotel, but it is a great value for the money. Our room was basic and clean with a balcony overlooking the beach/pool area. I do wish the balcony had a screen door instead of a regular door.... I love hearing the ocean while I sleep! The breakfast in the restaurant was great, the lunch and dinner okay. We opted not to do the all-inclusive option because there are several great restaurants within walking distance and we like to venture out. The pool area was very nice and we never had a problem getting a lounge chair or a seat at the swim-up bar, where we spent a lot of time since we were traveling during football season and my husband needed a TV! The bar above the restaurant had a beautiful view of the sunset. All staff members we encountered were very friendly and helpful.
At first I was a little disappointed that the beach was across the street, but it's really just a small drive used by local surfers on the weekends. During the week, there was barely any traffic. The beach was beautiful but a little narrow near the hotel. We visited in November and by the afternoon the tide was almost all the way up to the road, which made watching the sunset on the beach impossible! We got hassled a little bit to buy stuff right at the beach entrance, but with a firm NO the people left us alone.
Overall, if you're looking for an affordable place to stay in this area and you don't need a luxury resort to enjoy your trip, this hotel is a great option.
