Right on the beach. Perfect balcony location to watch the sunset...or just to watch the goings-on on the beach. Only drawback was the first floor location which opened right onto the boardwalk & passers-by....so felt like everything needed to be securely locked up (2nd floor or 3rd floor would probably be better). Room was a good size with 2 queen beds. Bathroom a bit small & a bit dated - we were there only for 1 night so a longer stay with 4 people in the room would have really tested the bathroom's capacity, especially given the amount of sand that comes in every time the kids comes back from the beach.
But this is the good thing about this hotel - the fact that it IS right on the beach. You step out right onto the sand. Spending an afternoon & morning walking on the sand, swimming the cold waters & enjoying the pier & everything it had to offer made us feel so refreshed & re-energised it felt like we had stayed longer!
The check-in was extremely fast & efficient. The staff were anticipating our arrival & offered suggestions for dinner etc which we took them up on & weren't disappointed. Breakfast left us somewhat lacking - there is a fair amount on offer but the number of people there & the self service aspect makes it very downmarket. Nonetheless, it was some food to get you going.
We woke up with the surf school/lifesaving school going through their training right outside our balcony which was awesome to watch upclose. Good hotel, great location. We'd recommend AND stay again.
