Cozy Hotel close to the beach.We enjoyed our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel was very clean. Every morning we walked along the beach and on our last day we were fortunate to see a pod of 4 dolphins swimming a short distance off shore. In the evening we relaxed by a cozy fireplace on the patio.
