Couples - stay away, Surfer Dudes - enjoy
Posted Jun 7, 2013
The online information about this hotel was deceiving. We stayed here one night on our travels farther down the coast. We chose this place because it is located right on the beach. The location is absolutely amazing, 10 second walk to the sand, but the hotel had many problems. The room was not very clean and everything was old and breaking. The sheets were not clean and the hotel staff reluctantly changed them for us. The kitchenette was old and pretty gross. Bottom line, compared to the other hotels we stayed in the off season, this was way too expensive for such a dumpy room and I can't understand how it is 3 stars. We booked a double room because that was the only thing available but because I was just with my wife, we were given a single. This turned out to be great because we had a fantastic ocean view through the broken blinds. We saw the double room and it didn't have a view and looked really bad. If I was traveling with a few friends on a surf trip this would be the best place! Right in front of a world class surf break! Since I was with my wife, we were about 1 minute away from canceling our room, eating the cost and finding another place. The beach is so nice and that made it almost worth it. We probably would have been better off camping on the beach. The surfing was amazing, I woke up and stepped onto the beach and into some barrels before breakfast. Not a place for couples, great for single surfer dudes. I should have come here 10 years ago.
