I had a very nice room overlooking the pool. For a small room I found it quite large with lots of extras for the price, I thought, such as TV, DVD player, microwave and small fridge, coffee maker, Ironing board (no iron but I'm sure the friendly staff would have provided one had I needed one). I could not believe all the closet space and all the drawers for my clothes. One of the roomier places I've stayed in for the price. It really felt like home away from home. Exceedingly comfortable.
The pool and its patio are quite big. There are plenty of places to lounge or to sit. There is sun on the patio all day. I nearly cooked my iPhone leaving it in the sun. People staying at the hotel were so friendly to me which is a wonderful thing when you are traveling alone. It's been said that it is largely and older crowd and I found this to be true. This may not be for the under forty crowd, at least from my experience. But for an older traveler like myself, it is ideal.
I can't give a full five stars and only because it's just not a fancy place. There are not an awful lot of amenities such as a bar or hot food. The breakfast was a little disappointing I must say. Having said that, I cannot stress enough that this is an excellent choice for anyone who wants simple, clean and comfortable accommodations with a very friendly atmosphere and just a block and a half from the beach. I miss it so much and I will probably be back very soon and stay quite a bit longer.
