Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice location and easy access to town. Got a room with glass panels that did not shut. At night the room turned into a freezer. One of the worst experience we had. Stayed there before and it was ok but this room should not be used in winter. Reception was not really that interested. Would expect as least a discount on the rate for a room like this.

A Nice location
The Hotel is in a very good condition and position however I doubt that anyone would be able to see the beach from any level. You do see the ocean and there is a beautiful park across the road from the hotel. The indoor heated swimming pool is a great advantage during winter and the spa was also very good. I think the beds need to be replaced they are starting to feel a little uncomfortable. Overall I would recommend this property. The staff were very cooperative
