This is the perfect vacation spot. Clean rooms, great service - Sam was super helpful- and you can't beat the beach side location. Everything is convenient and there are beautiful views. We've been here several times and will come back again.

What this place lacks in updates it definitely makes up in location and service! Sam at the desk was very accommodating and gave us the best tips on where to eat! We will be looking forward to our next trip!
