I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Between the time I made my reservation on expedia and the time we arrived, somebody bought this hotel and turned it from one I'd debated with myself about choosing into my favorite accommodation.
Yes all the normal stuff is good. The staff is so courteous that you feel as if you must be the most important person in the world to get such treatment. The property is beautiful. The location is good. The value is extraordinary. Are you getting the idea?
Our room felt more like a second home than a hotel room. Hardwood floors, fireplace, thick towels, furnishings that would be at home in the Hamptons and on and on and on.
In the evening there is a free happy hour with wine cheese and other snacks. In the morning they DELIVER YOUR BREAKFAST TO YOUR ROOM. It was amazing.
The property is a tiny sliver of land between the the highway and the beachside attractions, so you are not actually on the beach. This might be a problem for some people, but it didn't bother us at all. When you look out the window, it's the beach. To get to the beach you walk between a couple of buildings, one of which was a restaurant and the other was a hotel or condos or some kind of rentals. The people in them were friendly and we were invited to several parties. My husband went to the beach to fly his big kiteboarding trainer kite and suddenly became the center of interest for the whole beach. He had a great time sharing the fun with fellow vacationers.
If I had to find a problem, all I could come up with would be the parking lot. It's tight. Don't come in a ghetto cruiser or an RV. You'll have a hard time parking it.
