The rooms have been remodeled recently and are very nice and clean. I love the shower. It's huge and has two shower heads. One is overhead. The King room isn't real large, but cozy. There is a small fridge, coffee maker, but no microwave oven....More

No, there are no beds at the beach but it is very close to it (1 street). It has a small space in the middle of the hotel with some chairs and tables but not really to sunbathe, just to have some relax there.
