Negative Reviews


Early Birds

Many guests were disappointed that the restaurants generally closed early and had more limited hours in the off season. It's a good idea to double check these prior to making dining plans.


Weak Wi-Fi

Though most guests had no problem, a few thought the Wi-Fi was spotty and slow at times.



Though not the hotel's fault, the local area is known for tiny, nearly-invisible beach bugs and bringing your own bug spray is highly recommended as these critters do bite. In case you forget, the hotel does offer some for sale.
