Positive Reviews

Easy Access to a Well-Kept Beach

Guests appreciated how close they were to the beach, and often raved about the lovely views. Furthermore, they noticed how the section of the beach that's directly outside the hotel is very clean. It's free of cigarette butts and debris, giving the impression that the staff really care about keeping it up.

The Staff Are Extremely Attentive

Guests repeatedly discussed how the service given by the staff was incredibly, and constantly focused on meeting needs and making people feel at ease. Some guests reported getting to be on a first-name basis with some staff members.

Delicious Breakfasts

Guests had many good things to say about the quality and selection of the breakfast items. They often talked about how those foods helped them feel set for long and active days at the beach, and that they truly looked forward to eating breakfast each morning.

Negative Reviews

The Hotel Can Become Noisy

Guests sometimes mentioned noise problems and said the walls seemed much too thin. The rooms that were closest to the bar seemed most likely to suffer from excessive noise, so you may want to ask for a room that's more isolated from the bar if the option is available.

Very Loud Air Conditioning

There were numerous comments that the air conditioning system was abnormally loud. Some guests suggested part of the problem was due to the fact that the units seemed very old. Sometimes, the sound even woke guests up when they were sleeping.

Some Parts of the Hotel Are Showing Their Age

Occasionally, guests remarked that sections of the hotel looked a little dated. That comment was especially stated in reference to the exterior areas. However, guests usually just said this fault was merely a minor downside, and some actually thought it added charm.
