We stayed in a 2 BR apartment & it would be suitable for a wheelchair. One bedroom had a king double, the 2nd a zip-bed. The apartment was a really large, however the entry door was really heavy - had to really lean into it to push it open--don't know whether that could present a problem

"Get and oceanview room"
"It you have to pay extra for an ocean view room, then do so. Well worth it."
"An apartment room comes with kitchen facilities whereas the double rooms do not. The southern side would be much quieter."
"Choose ocean view"
"Get an ocean room apartment - not hotel room - and at least level 3 upwards."
