Not ADA friendly
The room was not ready at check in and a serious issue was left unresolved even a week after checkout. Staff and management were painfully unaware of their duties under the ADA. The property might be grandfathered (exempt from certain ADA requirements), but the business is not. Easily avoidable mistakes were made that caused harm. I do not recommend this place for anyone who has a mobility-related disability.

Not all units with ocean view as in the photo
I would like to give all stars for this hotel, if I have gotten the condo unit exactly with the ocean view as an in the photo. When I arrived to the hotel I got condo unit inside the hotel almost in front of the road instead of beachfront. The manager said that all beachfront units are ordered by regular visitors. However, there is no option to choose beachfront unit when you book it.
