    My husband and I were really happy staying here. We had a lovely room overlooking the ocean which we could see from a distance. The room was spotless and the bed a King with lots of room. My husband and I were very happy here.

    I really liked the view in the morning. The outside is kinda funky, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly. We did not have the breakfast but they do have complementary breakfast.

    Came in at night. Room was nothing spectacular, but was nice and clean and quiet. The view however when we got up in the daylight was stunning. We didnt realize how close to the water we were. Overall it was a nice stay.
