          I switched to this hotel after being very unhappy with where I was booked. I'm so glad I did. The hotel and surrounding's are beautiful, the room is so comfortable and spacious and the staff is great. Also, a fantastic location. Highly recommend.

          Rooms are simple but clean. It's within walking distance to the shopping, the ocean, and the national park, which totally eliminates the need for taxi service. Additionally, the staff is warm and helpful.
