    Relatively modern hotel on the beachfront. Ocean and beach in front of hotel is clean. Food was over priced but can eat elsewhere on the beach. Staff are not that friendly and bar man is the slowest ever!

    I am looking to book a room for 3 adults to share. I can book on line but it suggests that it's a double room. I need to know if the room will have either a double bed and a single bed or 3 single beds. The web site suggests that the room has either a double bed or 2 single beds only. Thanks Tony
