Best food on the beach! Also best prices on the beach plus the National Beer of Texas and lots of beach drinks. Great bands during the summer and smallest groups year round and the music is also family friendly.

Went there with a bunch of friends and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. They have a vollyball net set up on the beach. Would have been better if there was a waitress. Had to order and pick up food at the bar.

A must visit when I come to town. Laid back, love when the Bongo Dogs play, and I love the "Mildred was right signs",as my mom's name is Mildred and we sip great turbo pina coladas and watch the surf. A little hard for a handicapped person to get up to the cabana.

Our room was mere steps to the beach, food and drink! We were there in the off season and enjoyed the entertainment on the weekends. The food was the freshest seafood I have ever had and the staff were up beat and helpful. A great time for the whole family and they let us keep our dog in the room....

I wasn't a fan of wanna wanna... I talked my husband into it and now he has a reason to tell me , I told you so! Lol. Cons... The room was small and didn't smell very good.

The location is on the beach, the bar is SOOOOOOO good with its drinks, music and food. If you are looking for a luxury place, this is not it. Its a little loud at night which is a good thing or a bad think depending on your situation. It was not crazy loud but on the weekend there is a...

I chose Wanna Wanna for its location right on the beach. The room was very clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. My wife said the coffee maker was "disgusting", so she went out each morning for her coffee. The bed was comfortable. The bar was nice and not too noisy late at night. The best thing was that you...

We expected a pool to be on the property, like their website shows...when we got there the pool was filled with concrete. That was one of the reasons we wanted to stay there for 5 nights. They didn't even mentioned it when we checked in that there was no pool, what a disappointment!! Why didn't they tell us that when...

Clean, small, nice for a night. Refrigerator,microwave. Kind of expensive. Right on the beach. Busy grill and bar. Noisy at night after bar close. If your a morning riser the tables and bar area is dirty from after hours parties.

GREAT PLACE... clean rooms... it's nice to have rooms right off the beach. Very accessible, clean roomy, comfortable bed, a little older, and a bit pricey, although a great place to visit! Has an awesome grill and bar on sight, with good, efficient, and nice staff!
