Well, let's just say I'm on the fence on this one.. I'm not gonna lie, the location and beach service were awesome. But before "The Beach Shack" can truly provide the level of accomodations that match its steep price tag,it may need a new "trend" consultant. As the previous reviewer stated, the rooms were just a half-baked facelift. The air conditioning(in the bedroom) was pretty much a glorified fan, and the front room of the 2 room efficiency had no ceiling fan, a bit toasty to say the least. There was also a faint musty smell that permeated the rooms,no dressers for clothes,bathroom still had old mustard gold bathtub and 1970s style french provincial sink base,oh but it did have a stainless sink bowl,so I guess that justifies the overpriced rates. The staff was very friendly,but I still couldn't help but feeling ripped off. Check in was at 3,and I have in all my travels almost always been able to come up to the desk a little early and check in . Not so at "The Beach Shack",I actually couldn't get in until after 3, they also tacked on $125/day at check in "for incidentals",just in case. There is also a lovely large deck that overlooks the beach, with chairs and lounges. As a guest, one would assume it is accessible to all guests. Oh no, not so at "The Beach Shack", don't even try to relax on the deck or Queen Cougar will stick her leathery face out the door and snipe,"THIS IS PRIVATE,YOU KNOW". No your highness, I didn't know , how about some "Private Deck " signs posted to keep us common folk out of sight.
