I like that it was a beach front. Accessible. What I didn’t like is I have to clean the property before I check out which I’ve been charged for a cleaning fee. It doesn’t make sense. And the building style is zigzag, if you have so much stuff it is hard to get in and out of the property.

Second time we have stayed at this location. Love the proximity to the beach and the harbor. See you next year!

The hotel was very outdated, cabinets and other things are falling apart. Bunkbeds are not secure and not safe for children to sleep in. Cockroaches in the bathroom. Patio furniture broken and slide door was broken. Hot tub was out of service for few days. Sauna wasn't working. Missing lids for pots etc. The only thing nice about this place is location cuz it's on the beach; they charge extra $50+ for service fee but nothing is done. Would never come back
