We stayed in a 1 bd facing the water, on the 2nd floor. Deluxe beachfront. The view was quite nice however the communal lounge can see into the room quite readily. You will want to ask for a room set above the lounge or further off to the side. The room is not large, nor small and there is a great bathroom with separate tub and shower. The bathroom opens onto the main bedroom with wooden shutters that can be closed.
We dined twice in the restaurant, you can check the menu and prices online. The complimentary breakfast is fairly decent, cold foods only such as pastries but they are nice items, well laid out and you do have the option of supplementing with a hot order if you like. The lounge or Great Room is quite nice, you just have to stake out a seat for yourself. It's busier than other hotel lounges because it doubles at the restaurant whereas other places like the Wick or Cox Bay have dedicated lounge/viewing rooms.
Overall location is great, right on the beach. The weight room is not in the main building but you will have to dart across the parking lot to a separate building. As you drive in, the cottages that line the driveway look really cute but would not have any kind of beach or ocean view.
You are going to pay a premium here for the direct ocean views which are lovely, but if you don't like to stare at the waves, there are more economical options.
