We had a second floor (recommended) Oceanfront room with a balcony - great place to have a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. After enjoying a good breakfast at the hotel, we borrowed an umbrella tent and boogie boards from the front desk for daytime fun in the ocean. During evenings we walked to great restaurants recommended by the hotel staff. We didn't rent the bikes just outside our hotel, but saw many people enjoying boardwalk biking or skating along the boardwalk. My 11 year old granddaughter loved ziplining, rock wall climbing, and playing LazerMaze and LazerTag in nearby Belmont Park. That park also offered a great wooden roller coaster and man-made surfing wave, but we didn't have time to take advantage of those. The desk clerks could not have been more helpful with everything from recommending local businesses, arranging for transportation for five to the airport, and printing out our boarding passes. It was one of those rare vacations where we actually came home feeling relaxed! I think we all five agreed - best vacation ever!
