Disliked: Amenities
I paid close to $400 for a night. I wanted an ocean view room. The room was nothing special, and the view was mostly horizon ocean view. Beds are very uncomfortable. On top of that you can’t even get a decent cup of coffee here. The machine barely works. I think that is disappointing after spending that kind of money. Also they don’t even have glass cups for wine in the room. They want you to pay $8 for them. I will not stay here again. The are around the hotel is very nice and it is a short walk to the beach.
