They were in the middle of some construction due to storm damage. Just a bit of inconvenience. They should remove their old safes in the closet.

The picture that's on this site isn't what the condition of the beach. There were bulldozers moving sand getting ready to build a wall. The workers started early in the mornings. There was a "path" to get to the beach, but mostly construction was the view. False advertising by using this picture.

Friendly staff, great location and price. We loved the pools for the cooler and windy days. It was so nice being right on the beach as well. Staff was very friendly and flexible with our needs.
