We had the cheapest room but it came with a large bathroom with spa bath. Nice private courtyard. Very good air conditioning. And all the sky channels!! Most hotels seem to give you about eight tv channels but Waves has all sport and movie channels....More

This motel is located within a few steps from the beach. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well maintained. The front desk staff were more than helpful and willing to make sure that our stay was comfortable for us.
