We enjoyed this hotel but must acknowledge its limitations.
First, the good news: It's an excellent location right on the beach and a short cab ride ($5) to old town and all of the restaurants. You can also ride the local bus (about .50 per person). The hotel has just 45 rooms, so it never felt crowded and there were very few kids the week we were there (Dec 8 - 15). The restaurant is very good and reasonably priced and the pasta night and burger night promotions were a nice touch. I also appreciated the absence of the "Timeshare Hustle". If you want to know more about owning a unit there, you can visit the hospitality room and get the details in less than 15 minutes.
The bad news: the rooms are very dated and the place has a bit of tired feel to it. The beds are rock hard (mattresses are placed on plywood panels with no box springs). We had a two bedroom suite, but the second bedroom has a full size (double) and not a queen bed. The second bathroom is quite small.
Overall service was very good for both the restaurant and the rooms and the staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. I also appreciated reliable wireless internet service which cost just $25 for all of our devices for the week.
