Extremely dated but in a fun and kitschy way. Staff was incredibly laid back and kind. Very much an old beach resort vibe.

i didn't know what to expect when we arrived but once we entered the room we were surprised at how nice it was in the room and around the property. They have two pools - one by the restaurant and one for families that want quiet time.

I loved the beach front room we upgraded to for a small price. I had never stayed beach front and the sound of the waves and our balcony was better than going out! The stairs became a bit much after a while but hey, I'm young enough to climb them so not much of a dislike.
