    Just ok

    When I checked in, they didn't inform me that my booking didn't guarantee a king bed so I ended up checking into a room with two double beds. I didn't know this until I got there. They were able to get me into a king room for a fee of course. Parking is pretty expensive, would have been a lot better if it was cheaper or free. The room itself was comfortable. The bathroom was dated, shower head was nothing special that made me feel like I was on a resort. The balcony was very nice overlooking their little beach. We had so many activities planned that we didn't utilize the pool or spa. I would say the value of this place is not as great when you factor in the dated bathrooms and the parking fees.

    Nice place to to stay . Our 2nd time here. Room was great...beautiful view of ocean from our lanai. The only thing we didn’t like was paying $18 per day to park.

    Great stay

    The hotel is situated in a great location right on the shoreline, with bars and restaurants a walking distance away. We had an ocean view room with fantastic views of the sunset each day and enjoyed watching the waves crash into the rocks below. The bar and restaurant were solid and the resort has a little lagoon with a very small sandy beach. The pool has an ocean view, however, the pool is very small and we didn’t use it. The only negative was that the hotel and resort is very dated - popcorn ceilings, old cement building, etc. It could use a remodel. And you had to pay $18 a night to park at their lot.

    Not a good hotel.

    The hotel did not honor the reservation as promised by hotels.com, our room was different. The hotel is older. The staff did not always wear their covid masks. The beds were awful and uncomfortable.
