I booked this because it was rated #1 on this site and was reasonably priced. When we arrived, my wife and I viewed the place and wanted to leave. Our initial impression was not good. We'd already paid for the night, so we stayed. It is NOT a resort....more like an 'older' motel. It's probably better for families with children, but didn't do anything for us. It was nice to have a suite, but it was very small and the bedroom was tiny. We discussed whether it was a queen bed, but both really thought it was a double. The place was like something my parents took me to in the 60s, and I'm sure this one hasn't been upgraded. It was also quite far out of town. I found a less expensive one closer to town, with a swimming pool. The grounds were large, but nothing special. It was a walk across the road to a small beach.
It's an 'older' motel. - nothing more.
A big plus was that the people running the place were 'very' nice.
