Plus - employees, outstanding service. Just for this, it gets bumped from 3 to 4.
Plus - clean, spotless, impeccable!
Plus - great location, big rooms, right on the beach, great sunsets & moonsets.
Plus - mini fridge + microwave, lots of electrical plugs
Plus - glass barriers against the wind, this March was very cold.
Plus - on one side, along the outer wall, away from the beach & wind, great spot for tanning between noon & 5pm. Three charcoal BBQ's & sets of tables.
Plus - modern big TV with HDMI.
However, a few minor negatives, to consider versus a vacation rental or hotel further out.
- very little storage space, yet the rooms are big enough to have extra storage space for clothes & such.
- shower only (standard room on the side, 2nd floor) NO BATHTUB, all ceramic.
- very noisy toilet. Close the door for your SO, or if it's yellow, let it mellow
- Showering, watch out. Drastic water pressure changes whenever somewhere else the toilet is flushed (not your unit), you have to dodge to not get burnt.
The shower space is large, so plenty of room to dodge.
If the rooms were better furnished for more storage & the shower installations modernized (plumbing) this place could be a true 5/5.
