    Fire pits are close to beach and make for great sunsets!

    5/5 Excellent

    The very helpful lady checking is in. I can’t recall her name. I rented a room with a balcony. The picture showed an ocean view. Mine had a view of a hedge and trees. Misleading practice.

    Staff was very kind. Had an issue with getting into our room and they fixed it right away. Out dated AC unite so the room got a bit too warm.

    Room was great. No coffee grounds for in-room pot as promised and brochure touted their new text-us service for anything we needed, so at 4:20 pm we sent a text to get coffee. After second ext we just waked down to desk and got some. Next morning at1:45, after we checked out, we got a reply that they could bring it to our room. About 12 hours late. Disappointing attention to an offered service.
