Great position for shops and restaurants and short walk to the beach. Parking is a bit limited especially during Covid as valet is suspended. Breakfast is the typical minimalistic fare but wasn’t expecting too much. Great all round though and would definitely stay again . Staff super friendly . Thumbs up !
