Traveled with family
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Close to the beach, but two towels for four people, no phone, crappy parking, very sketchy wifi, and way overpriced for the accommodations. I would never stay there again nor recommend it to anyone.

WiFi did not work
I could not connect to the WiFi during my stay. There wasn’t a chair in my room and the phone was not working. Location is good because it’s near the beach, but I would not stay again.
