Was looking for small, friendly hotel on the beach, but also with views of the beach. Wannawanna is small (about 15 rooms), everyone very friendly. It is right on the beach. For me, other than the friendliness, the main draw was the chairs on the balcony from which one could view the ocean. The common area around the bar/restaurant is huge. Ask for an upstairs room where the ocean view is better. The room was very clean and all the appliances (fridge, air conditioning, microwave, etc.) worked very well. The week I went there was live music at the attached bar/restaurant on weekends, including Thursday. You will hear this from your room, but this could be a good thing. If you want silence, book a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evening. Management may give you a discount if you go on "off days," Monday through Thursday. Added plus were novels on loan from the office. One negative feature was the state of the door locks; difficult to open the doors from the outside. Perhaps they had rusted from the sea air? Whatever the reason, the management might do well to completely redo the lock system. I felt the accommodations would suit all ages, including myself, elderly single lady travelling solo. Would I go again? Absolutely!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have better ocean view from the balcony. Ask ahead of time if live music will be played that day in the restaurant/bar area.

Had a friend suggest staying here. What a great choice! Can't beat being right on the beach with a bar and restaurant right there. Rooms are clean, nothing fancy, but just what you want when you're hanging at the beach! The bands were great, and you can hear them if you go to bed early, but they only play until 11. Can't wait to go back and chill with a pina colada or the Wanna Wanna!!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a nice view of the beach.

It was what we wanted and expected. It is not the best, but it is what we were looking for. Rooms were clean and acceptable. We were looking for something right on the beach and somewhere to eat and drink without having to drive. Only issue - we had a sliding door that could only be locked from the outside (it had a chain for when we were in the room). Did get the best price from booking online.

Room Tip: We wanted a view of the waves and for this you will need to be on the second floor.

First off its not a place I would stay, been there several times over the last year and have never heard someone say, oh best room ever! But for beach access and sitting and drinking the turbo Colada's, it can't be beat...

I love this little bar, I don't eat fried foods often, and that's really all they serve. But it is right on the beach, the sound and smell of the ocean, beautiful people and good music, don't short change yourself, check this place out. Might be your new home away from home as well...
