This place looks great on line but, when you arrive the deluxe ocean view room is so small the King size bed is less than 2 feet from the dresser drawers. The bath tub / shower is about 3.5 feet above the floor but they provide a step stool for access. The water splashes on the top surface of the tub and drains onto the floor creating a slip hazard. We left after the first night and upon check out the clerk did not want to honor the quoted price. Furthermore the parking rate of $33.00 daily is way too much and they don't inform you that public parking is within walking distance for $6.00 daily.
I will say the view from our room was wonderful. That was all that was wonderful.
