Hotel was nice and a convenient walk to the beach.The room was clean and plenty of amenities like a refrigerator, Microwave, coffee pot, iron, hairdryer and shampoo, etc. The Bathrooms were not planned well as they are too small. When you sit on the potty you are running into the TP holder and the door runs over your toes if you aren't careful. ...
