From check in with a yummy chocolate chip cookie, to the relaxing, heated pool and Jacuzzi, we had a great trip. The front desk staff are friendly and knowledgeable. This is a big property. Our first room was up the elevator a few floors and around a couple corners. We went back to the front desk and were easily moved across the courtyard to a beautiful 2nd story room right down from the elevator. The shutters opened to the courtyard and we enjoyed a drink while the cool breeze blew through the room. The one downside to that beautiful courtyard--drunk people yelling late at night. Even with the windows closed, for a couple of hours, there was screaming and cursing. Annoying, but not the hotel's fault. Parking is a little steep--$20 a night, or $17 if you self-park, but it's right on site and you can come in and out, so I guess for a beach town, not too bad. We loved our stay and plan to return in September.
