We've used hotwire.com for hotels for our trips to HHI. We choose 4* only. We're doing some preliminary checking for a trip in mid to late September, and we've been getting a 4* hotel with no amenity icon for the beach. In the past, three of the four 4* hotels have shown icons for being beachfront, and the fourth (Crowne Plaza) has an icon for being an easy walk to the beach. I checked www.betterbidding.com and I don't find any HHI 4* hotels listed without some kind of beach icon.
Since the beach is the biggest draw for us to HHI, we're at a loss here to know where we'd be if we get a 4* hotel with no beach icon (when the time comes to make the purchase). Help??
