  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Enjoyed the option to use the ocean level pool at the sister hotel. Our room with ocean view was not straight on but a side view. Still beautiful to hear the ocean. Breakfast was very good with many options! Parking is a nightmare! Insufficient space available to hotel guest.
