The location was great and it’s right on the beach but the rooms and building definitely need to be updated cause it’s a bit trashy.
The person at the front desk was very nice. Rooms were clean. Room service or getting stuff brought up was slow but could be due to COVID.
We wanted a breathtaking ocean and dune view and this delivered. Very clean with appropriate COVID-19 cleaning protocols. Great, private beach right out the door. The only improvement would be a better mattress as this one was not comfortable.
Beautiful property. Everything looks really new and is really clean. We had a Corner room on the third floor. It was away from everything and quiet. Love the location. Lots of food options near by.
My girlfriend and I loved everything about it sine the moment we walked inn to the moment we left great stay THANK U
