Well I'll start with check-in, room wasn't ready until almost 4 p.m. (check in was at 3 p.m.) I finally got the manager and she went up to help because there was only ONE housekeeper on staff.
Now on to the room, very cramped. I traveled with a family of four and we could barely move around without bumping each other.
Some of the other posts mentioned the outside corridor I did'nt have a problem with that, actually liked it.
The water is awful, (strong smell of sulfur). The bathroom doors did not lock and one of them did not even latch. (family of four tiny room, we need locking bathroom doors.) The remote to the T.V. did not work and was missing the rear cover, also only one T.V. in the den.
On to the restaraunt, the frier was down the entire trip which means no chicken fingers for the kids, out of apple juice, out of chocolate milk, my wife paid 7 dollars for a pina coloda and they apparently forgot that they are supposed to put alcohol in it. The food that we did get was O.K. but I've had better McDonalds. In all fairness the breakfast was good, big selection and FREE.
Now on to the important part- The Beach
It was beautiful, large, not crowded, bird sanctuary to the north and a inlet the kids loved!
All situated at a dead end road.
