Our family of four stayed for five days. We absolutely loved it! Room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in room #102. There is a room air conditioner, and we turned it on when we arrived. It kept the room nice and cool the entire stay. No, it's not the fanciest place in the world, but for going to the beach and sightseeing, it was perfect. Our room was away from the band and we never heard it at all. Even so, they end at midnight, so it was never even an issue for us.
Our water pressure was great, both early in the morning and late at night. Water was nice and warm, and bathroom was clean. We ended up with a lot of sand on the floor, but there was a broom and dustpan in the room, so we just swept it up and all was well.
Pool required a wristband to show that we were guests. We just made them loose and wore them while in the pool, and removed them when not using the facility.
Free internet wifi was included, it was good for surfing the internet but not strong enough to rely on for anything else.
The Beach bar was fantastic. Great smoothy type adult beverages. There were kind of pricey at $9.75 each. I loved the Cerviche! There was a singer on the weekend from 2-6 and he was quite good. The bands were from 8-12 and were also decent. It was nice to sit out at the bar and look at the beach and the waves and listen to the music!
The beach was also great. Well taken care of in front of the inn and bar. Chairs and umbrellas could be rented.
Room had a microwave, toaster, coffee maker and refrigerator. We went to the local grocery store and bought snacks and drinks, which was handy after being at the beach all day.
My suggestion would be to RENT A CAR!! We weren't sure about it before we came, and we definitely would have been stranded without one! There is no shuttle from Brownsville airport to here, and it was almost as cheap to rent a car for five days and it would have been to have a taxi make the trips. Smartest thing we did! It would have been a long walk to restaurants because the only thing even close is the beach bar. Everything else is on the main strip, which would be a pain to walk to everyday to find a restaurant. (probably a mile minimum..)
We would definitely like to return! After driving around the area, this is one of the closest places to the beach, the best bar near the bear, and seriously the friendliest best attitude, both from other guests and from the employees.
