There are some good features about this hotel: 1) it is right on the beach. This is lovely. Even as a hotel guest and paying high prices for the room you have to pay for chairs on the beach. 2) the restaurant has good food. 3) the staff are so-so. Sometimes they go out of their way to help and some times they completely ignore you. Now the down sides: 1) as others have noted there is a complete lack of towels at this hotel. It is baffling. They have so few towels at the pool. We were there 4 days and never were able to get pool towels. They have a lack of towels in the rooms also so be careful if you give your towels up. 2) I was amazed that a dog pooped in the lobby and I told a bell hop about it. He said someone was coming to clean it up but he did not go direct people away from it. Other guests were warning each other but not the hotel staff. Now mind you, this is near the beach. People are walking bare foot around the hotel yet he did not want to go near the poop. 3) If you are there on the weekend beware of loud music at the outdoor bar. It gets very loud and some of the people are drinking too much. It is a deterrent for families. We saw a young women arrested on the beach as we passed through the bar area to the hotel. 4). The parking is limited as others have noted. The hotel is also an older model. Our room was clean.
