We didn't stay here (we had reserved through a third party web site but there was a mix up- the hotel was very good at finding us alternatives at the Wickanninish) but from what I saw it is absolutely gorgeous. I didn't see any of the rooms but I did see the lounge/restaurant that has a full frontal view of the ocean with a balcony. I also walked down to the beach and their outdoor cafe. Also a plus is the on-site surf and wet suit rentals so you don't have to lug the stuff in your car. The cottages are in the rear so if you want an ocean view you'll have to book a hotel room- looks like the second and third floors with balconies are the best rooms. We loved the Wickanninnish but I think if you're traveling with a family this is may be a better alternative- not only far less expensive but also the on-site rentals make it a lot easier. From what I can tell from the pictures the rooms seem maybe a little less luxurious than the Wick (don't know if the Long Beach has heated floors in the bathroom for example) but other than that I don't think you lose much going with Long Beach, and at a much lower cost. We also had dinner in the restaurant and both the food and the service was fabulous. The waitstaff are extremely professional and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the restaurant.
