8/10 Very good

Excellent service and super friendly staff. Enjoyed the pool greatly. Our room was double booked, but the staff went out of their way to find us a room for the night 50 yards down the street.

Lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf
I'm not sure where I liked hanging out best: the rooftop with views to the Pacific, the pool, the dining room or my room. This is a great place and only steps to the beach to watch the waves and the amazing sunsets.

8/10 Very good

The property was fine, but my flight was unfortunately delayed and I arrived around 11pm. Everything was dark and no one was around so I rang the bell a few times as no one came the first couple times. When the manager arrived, he was grumpy with me because of the time and ringing the bell 'too much'.
