It's a great location at the far edge of town, within easy walking distance of everything. The beach is right across the street, and the hotel will loan you beach towels and chairs. If you don't feel like going to the beach, you can enjoy the view from a lounge chair on the roof deck, which has a fabulous unobstructed view of the harbor. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, and the bathroom was spacious and well laid out. We appreciated the complimentary water bottles and wifi, and the bottle of champagne for my husband's birthday. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's very nice for a resort. However, be aware that because all the rooms face onto a central courtyard, it's not super quiet. We had a very pleasant experience at this reasonably priced hotel.
