Room with a view

Some guest rooms offer full or partial views of the ocean, and guests say the views are impressive. You'll love watching the sunset or gazing out into the blue from your private balcony or patio.

Negative Reviews

No elevator

This property does not have an elevator, so you'll have to carry your luggage up the stairs. Some guests say this was a disappointment, while others didn't mind going up a short flight of stairs.

A few updates are needed

Overall, the hotel gets praised for being in good condition. However, a few guests have noted that few spots need deep cleaning and some of the furniture requires replacement. Other minor issues, such as tarnished fixtures, have been noted.

No air conditioning

This hotel enjoys a cool, breezy location for the most part. However, some guests say booking a stay in the warmer months can be uncomfortable without air conditioning or ceiling fans in rooms.
