The water pressure from the shower was terrible. I know that usually happens when a hotel is packed, but I've never experienced a shower with little to no water pressure. Also, our AC wasn't functioning properly during our stay (it was blowing out hot air). We had maintenance take a look but it still didn't function correctly. Other than these unfortunate mishaps, the stay was decent. The ocean views are absolutely beautiful.

The property is on the beach! The bar was nice. We used the restaurant for many meals-all were good. Only complaints-some of the bedding and towels looked dirty/stained. You have to walk a block or so to the parking garage and the area is not very safe/clean the surrounding hotels are very run down
