    This property is truly ocean front and stunning. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beds were comfy and clean. The daily breakfast was great and the beach chairs/umbrellas were nice to have access to. The one thing that needed some TLC was the condition of the exterior and balconies. Due to being on the ocean, I understand the wear and tear of beach living, but it's time to remodel. A gym would be great too!

    I loved that this property is close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We didn’t have to drive during our stay. Everything is within walking distance. We’ll definitely be returning here someday. The staff were very friendly and professional.

    We were only booked in for one night - but the room was fabulous (very large) and even though we booked 'partial ocean view', in fact the view was terrific over the hotel pool and to the ocean. A lovely surprise!
