We had two rooms and a separate kitchen. The hotel was right on the beach. There was a swimming pool. It would be great for a beach getaway. Our room was clean, but housekeeping never visited after we checked in. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The beach was at the back of the hotel. I think that was what made it great. I didn't like that there was not many amenities like soap and the bed was very hard and uncomfortable

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room needed to be cleaned prior to Check in there were nail clippings on the floor. A used hair scunci on the main living area. There was plastic packaging from a charger on the floor in the bedroom. . Dust bunnies. Spider webs. There was a fly above the light in the bathroom and is probably still there. The furniture was dirty I wiped them myself with alcohol wipes. The table tops were disgusting. The rug was not vacuum. I checked in after 7:00 pm was very tired from the trip and chose to clean up myself. The location was great. However, the pool area was filthy. Not inviting at all. There were wet suits from prior guest for the three days I was there on the floor around the pool area. The outside dining tables were dirty. The Breakfast vegan options were few. I did tell the housekeeper about the dirty tub and I asked her to let me spay it before I could use it on Friday morning I let her know about the dirty conditions she wiped the tub for us and for that I am grateful. When I gave the report to Julia at the front desk she had an attitude and asked me if I reported it when I checked in. I was very disappointed to have had to sleep in such a filthy room after being in locked down for a year due to the pandemic. The only thing they had going was the beach.
