Had dinner here for a second time and was very happy! Atmosphere is great, located right on the water. Nice bar with a casual and fun feel. Food was quite delicious and staff was super friendly and helpful. New management staff of Antonio and Korey were great and attentive to our needs. I highly recommend stopping here for dinner or...

We were staying near here, and walked down the beach for lunch. The view is amazing. We had the ceviche and the lobster risotto (light lunch). The risotto was perfect and the lobster wasn't over cooked. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the view is spectacular.

We arrived late to find the garden courtyard illuminated by candles, cool music playing and a feeling of calm welcome - excellent vibe - the room was fine with a big closet, in-room safe and small fridge - the terrific restaurant was steps from our room, and we enjoyed the continental breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner there - the seafood...

We have stayed at this hotel several times. We had three rooms booked and when we arrived they only had one. The manager made arrangements at another hotel for the night. Obviously, not ideal but they corrected their mistake. The hotel is nice with a great location right on the beach!! Nice restaurant on site overlooking the ocean. Would definitely...

This hotel has an amazing location. Not on the beach, but the ocean crashes against the back deck and it is so beautiful. This place reminds me of a beach hotel that you would have stayed at in the 50's. It has some minor problems like keys not fitting the doors and lights not working; however, it is charming and...

The hotel was a good value. The rooms were clean. The continental breakfast was good with an excellent ocean view just feet away. The restaurant and bar staff were very helpful and friendly! I loved the fact that there are beaches within 2 minute walk.

This is a very dated, run down small hotel (more like a motel) with no real view of the ocean as advertised. The restaurant sits right on the sea, so that may be what people refer to in other reviews. In fact, the restaurant is the best part about this hotel. Great local food and fun atmosphere. We stayed in...

The Ocean View king had none of the views they showed. There were wires etc running through your view. Nothing special. And nowhere is mentioned that the restaurant is closed two days a week (a restaurant was the major reason to book it) There was no toilet paper holder in the bathroom, music was channeled into the courtyard/hallway (why I...
