    Stayed 3 nights for the high surf. Great time and hotel. Jack O’Neill lounge was festive with live music. Good menu at Aquarius. Going back for sure! Watch surfers and volleyball from your deck. Great pool and spa.

    Every room is ocean view! An amazing view at that. Super close to the boardwalk and wonderful restaurants. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The pool and spa are really nice too. It’s not cheap, even in the off season, but worth the money....More

    I believe it is, since there were a lot of people in it. I didn't check the temp though so I don't know how warm it was. There is also a Jacuzzi.
