Monterrey, Mexico1 contribution
Came here for lunch and John-Wyatt was one of the most entertaining, friendly bartenders I've ever had. He made my meal better than it tasted by his hospitality and service. Would come back to the bar just to see him again. The food was OK, I wish they brought back the shrimp nachos and pork belly though.

Perfect setting to relax with a drink or some food. John the bartender is fun to chat with, and provides great service. Love coming here. The restaurant upstairs offers tiered seating to enjoy the ocean view. I only wish it was a more affordable place to stay!

Wouldn’t stay here again, very overpriced. Room smelled light wet dog and carpets were very dirty. Just felt gross being in there. Not very quiet, seemed like a party hotel. Lots of groups getting drunk and walking around the property. Only stayed one night and left a day early, I will say that the front desk staff was very nice and understanding.

The bar experience was amazing John the bartender managed to remember my order and take care of 25 to 30 customers.. that young man is really good at his job. That man needs a raise. he was working alone that night as well
