Nice hotel close to the beach
Posted Oct 14, 2016
I got to the hotel after a 20-30 shared-ride shuttle from the airport. The driver mentioned there are various restaurants nearby, and they're within walking distance of the hotel, both national chains and more local sounding. The hotel is across the street from the beach including rooms on the one side with balconies overlooking the beach. I arrived late morning and the check in time seems to be strict at 3:00 PM. I carried my bag with me across the street and walked on the beach for a short time. Then walked to lunch passing a large national drugstore offering food, sunblock lotions, a pharmacy and OTC meds, alcohol, seasonal items, etc. Walked back and changed clothes in the public restroom to spend more time on the beach (still had over an hour before check in, would have been nice to be able to check in, change clothes, and leave my bag at the room rather than carry it with me along the beach). Several more restaurants and tourist shops along the beach. I checked in at 3:00 and the process was straightforward. The room was clean and comfortable though a bit dated. A kitchenette was included. Went out to the beach again and stayed out until sunset, having dinner at one of the local restaurants.
