Fantastic place right on the strand! Close to many great dining places! Friendly staff! Pool is great! Rooms are clean and got everything you need so no need to go anywhere if you don't wish. Definitely will be staying here again!

Thanks for the feedback NicT80. Please check out our Executive Deluxe rooms next time you stay for a more recently renovated room. You'll still get the same awesome ocean views and a fresher room.
