The location of this property is amazing and that's the best thing about it. The room was a bit tired and there is a crazy two-hour check-in window listed (4-6pm) although the reception staff were still there when we returned from dinner after 8pm. I wouldn't recommend eating at the on-site restaurant - our dinner was awful - so much so that we didn't risk breakfast!
We stayed in an oceanfront room with 1 queen bed. The room was adequate, nothing special. It was pretty small, but fine for us. I had a choice of first or second floor and mistakenly took the first floor so we could walk out onto the grass and through a short area of small dunes and onto the beach. It would have been much better on the 2-4 floors for the view and an added bonus of a small balcony. The bathroom was small. There was a lot of noise from outside. I think from kids coming back from the pool or people getting on/off the elevator. You could hear everything going on outside. I would definitely ask for a room away from the elevator. It wasn’t horrible and was quiet during the night and in the morning. The checkin people were pleasant. The room was clean; a little dated but that didn’t bother us. A great value for an ocean front room.
