We booked this room less than a week before arrival and got an incredible quote over the phone. When we arrived we were upgraded to a bigger room with more amenities for no extra charge. The staff was super friendly and helpful with information about local attractions and restaurants. The pool was perfect for us as a family of 3... More

Had an excellent time here for an extended weekend of tiki adventures. Room was well-cared for, plenty of amenities including stove, coffee pot, fridge, and ice machine close by. What else could you want? Jenny was a wonderful host and very accommodating. The beach is a 1 minute walk and the sand is lovely. A little slice of Paradise on... More

I stayed here this weekend for an educational event about Tiki. The beds were comfy and the pool was relaxing. It is very close to the beach and there are some cute little markets close by. It is removed enough from the boardwalk that it does feel like an escape. The owners were thoughtful and even cooked us a clambake... More

We went to Barcelona many years ago, it was the only place that had vacancy for a last minute vacation. The rooms were dark and dreary, and moldy smelling. The pool was nice, however very small. It is in a quiet part of the Crest. I would not recommend staying here until major renovations are done.
