We stayed for only a couple of days, but I would've liked to stay longer. We had an ocean front room which was worth the extra money. We could see the manta rays from our balcony and one morning I saw a pod of dolphins who swam very close to the shore. The pool and grounds were very nice and weren't very crowded. There is a historical area to the right as you look toward the hotel from the parking lot. Very interesting and there are some tide pools with tiny critters to see also.
Word of warning; 4 teenage boys tried to jump off the rocks and go swim with the rays. The current near the rocks was too strong and they couldn't get close to shore. They had to be rescued by one of the boats that came for manta ray watching. There is a swimmable beach at mile marker 5, not at hotel, which is at mile marker 6.5...
The shopping area very close to the hotel was very useful, post office with lots of boxes for shipping, gas station, grocery, pharmacy, etc. The pharmacy more like Target... Beach towels, water shoes, even an entire Hello Kitty isle!?
The hotel isn't within walking distance to downtown, but it was an easy drive and we didn't have any trouble parking.
