Lovely room - really clean - nice patio and sea view. Hot tub a big plus too. Some construction nearby but the breakfast accommodation they made worked well.

Friendly staff
The front desk staff loaned us an iPhone charge adapter since we forgot to bring it with us on the trip. She went out all the way to help us.

10/10 Exceptional

Good hotel but too pricey for a weekday rate. Didn't have time to look around so decided staying here anyways. Bedroom is spacious. Bed very comfortable. Full Ocean view as advertised. Shower pressure ok. Construction off site so noisy in the AM. Didn't have time to use pool but there were family and kids having great time there. Seems to be dog friendly. Welcoming front desk. Might look around next time before committing going back.
