Great place overall.
Hotel is dated but was still a very nice place. Only a minute or 2 walk to the beach. We stayed in a suite and had one issue with the sink not draining when we got there (late check in) so they just moved us to another room which was fine. Lots to do around the hotel. There are several bars around so the late night droids wondering around do get loud and can be heard from inside of the room which was annoying, but not the hotels fault. Great place to stay and plan on staying there again sometime, even though they show they are booked up through the summer already.

It was right on the beach which was very nice. The elevator didn't work the day we checked out so we had to carry our bags down a flight of stairs. Was close to the airport but not the best area of town.

Very central location and tons of things to do in the area. Kitchen was great and beach was steps away. Our family loved it.
