We enjoyed this property a lot. We were welcomed with a glass of fresh-squeezed juice and cool washcloths at check-in, and the staff was wonderful. Extremely helpful and attentive.
Lots of beach amenities - chairs, towels, body boards, etc - and a block from the beach make this one a good choice if you want to be right in the middle of everything.
The room was a bit on the small side and the lighting wasn't particularly good, even in the bathroom. Actually, the whole property was pretty dark which was a bit strange. But the bed was incredibly comfortable and the bedding was nice and soft. We didn't spend much time in the room anyway so those things didn't matter much in the grand scheme. Breakfast didn't start until 7am which meant we sometimes missed it (we headed out early most days), and it was limited to tea/coffee and pastries so if you want a more substantial breakfast you'll have to go elsewhere. I appreciated the fact that they had hot water and ice water 24/7.
We were able to get a fantastic price on this room - look online for promo codes before you book - but even without it would have been a good value given the location and in comparison to other nearby hotels. Independent hotels can sometimes be risky since we can't rely on brand recognition, but this was a decent choice. We would stay there again.
