I enjoyed how the property had easy and quick beach access with beach chairs set up. I did not enjoy how our rooms window AC was extremely dusty and did not appear to have been cleaned, there was some mold growth in the corner of the shower with an extremely dirty and rusted looking shower head that was about the height of a 5ft tall person, the railings or handle bars within the shower were rusted and coming out of the wall, there was a blood droplet stain in the bathroom under the wooden counter stand, some of the safe’s screws were falling out of the wall. it was not the nicest and most updated room but was definitely not the worst one from what we could see from others windows. the tiki bar had terrible service as the bartender was flirting with customers and receiving free pizza from another customer that he got too distracted to serve us our nachos when they came out of the kitchen, thus in our hanger we had to eat soggy nachos. We also overheard the bartender tell the couple (who ordered him free pizza) that the kitchen was closed at 5pm, but the front desk and everyone else told us the tiki bar served food until 7pm. However, back to what i enjoyed, it was very nice to have multiple outdoor showers to rinse off after the beach and there was a small grass area behind the property but prior to the beach to walk your pet.
