Just came back from a 3 night stay here and we had 2 rooms for 12 people. The price you pay for being right on the beach is very good. Then again, for the price you pay you may also need to put up with the cranky woman at the front desk. I read the previous reviews and brushed them off, but she berated me in front of my family within an hour of our arrival. Still don't know why, on the phone I said we had 11 people and one extra came at the last minute so we had 6 for each room which is allowed (6 adults & 6 children). I think she thought were were trying to get more than 12 in the rooms, but there was no excuse for her behavior and extreme unprofessionalism. She then proceeded to yell at another family the same time she was yelling at me. I then witnessed her tirade on yet another family on day 2. Kind of makes you wonder, if she is screaming at so many people, who is the real problem? Regarding the rooms- We found that our feet were getting black from walking on tile floor in the room so had to wear out flip flops in the room. The other room had carpet and was wet from the time we got there. Rooms are small, but get the job done. Showers are like previous reviews- water gets hot, cold, hot, cold, etc. Again, the location is great and it was nice to be right on the beach. The psychopath front desk lady didn't ruin our vacation and didn't bother us again after the incident on the first day and we did have a wonderful family vacation. Not sure if I would stay here again and I do think the cheaper price reflects the potential abuse you may take from the front desk lady.
