As others here have said, it is not the Ritz and is not intended to be. It was a nice, clean room, right on the beach. You can't beat it. The restaurant is outdoors, right outside your door and is the only thing that separates your room from the beach. You can roll out of bed and walk 20 yards to a good breakfast with your toes in the sand, then walk 20 more yards and be in the ocean. Absolutely great spot.
The food is great as well. Nick, the restaurant manager was very friendly and accomodating, as were all the staff. We stayed 5 days from 5/3 to 5/8.
The only 2 negatives, and I'm nitpicking, are no pool - you're right on the ocean - and the rocks on the beach. You do have to be careful when swimming. That being said, great place and I'd highly recommend it.
