Food was delicious with many healthy choices as well. We went there with our toddler and had no trouble keeping busy or relaxing. Ocean beach is clean and picturesque. Rooms are comfortable but consider upgrading from standard as you get more room and amenities.

The rooms and grounds are clean and it is nice having a kitchenette. Restaurants, beach, and shopping are all within walking distance. The Palace is right...
