Negative turned into a Positive: I called to confirm that I really did have a room (after making a reservation online) with a view of the beach and was assured all rooms have a view. Well, we checked in and our room had a view of the office in between I could see water! I went to the office to ask about changing and the staff went out of their way to find us a room with a view!! Showing us 2 others until they found us one! The only true negative was the water. I am not sure what the problem is but I don't think it is because of the hotel's pipes. Something with the city?? The room we stayed in was clean and still looked brand new. Nice decor and color scheme. The only other problem was at noon on the first day our room keys stopped working. So, had to go to the office to get it re-keyed.
Restaurant still needs some work.. Prices are to high for the quality of food for lunch or dinner, breakfast prices not so bad. Of course you are paying for convenience when you are on vacation.
Will be going back for sure!
