The beach is the draw. Never a problem with lounge chairs, cabanas, towels, etc. Staff very friendly. Older facility but well maintained. Room was clean but walls paper thin. Also balcony outside of rooms (on 2nd floor) is shared. No problem if you're not next t o rowdy neighbors (we were awakened by noise only one morning). Had room service once during our 5 night stay and food was delivered promptly and well prepared. Lively bar by the 2 pools.
Overall would recommend with above reservations.
