Pros: It is on the beach. Has a very nicely landscaped yard leading out to the beach. The pool is pretty nice. The outside is pretty.
Cons: The front desk was fairly rude the two times I spoke to them. I stayed in a "suite" which is just a long rectangle with a sad little divider between the beds and couch. The is a tv for each area which are on the same wall about 10 feet apart.
The room was kind of dirty and the door had a large gap at the bottom where you could see sunlight coming through. We had to keep a towel along the bottom of the door because bugs came in. Unfortunately anytime we were out the bugs could get in.
As previously mentioned in other reviews the "suite" claims a kitchenette but there is no sink. You brush you teeth at the "kitchenette sink." Not even a toaster to be found. No plates, silverware or cups.
The absolute worst part though is the room stays damp. It just feels moist when you are there. The long rectangle box of a "suite" has no windows except at the small front side of the rectangle. The bathroom is in the back and has no fan. The room constantly felt moist and the little wall mounted ac unit couldn't keep the moisture out. The box spring cover has mold/mildew on it.
There is no outside seating except for the eight "oceanfront rooms."
I was in Suite 138. I can't imagine why you would want to go to this hotel (I wouldn't go back).
It could be a nice little hotel. But it isn't.
