8/10 Very good

Stayed for two nights in the courtyard rooms recently. All the staff were great, welcoming and helpful and being so close to the ocean is wonderful. The room was an older style but a good size with a super comfy bed. Small kitchen without cutlery or a toaster and the cups were tiny. The pool was out of order, the laundry was handy but the dryer took ages to dry our 2 loads. Eight of us had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night (2 of us staying there and 6 friends who live in that town). The food was okay but the staff closed up and were waiting for us to go by 9pm lol. I would consider staying again but I would definitely try one of the newer rooms / be closer to the water and hope that the pool and the dryer are fixed by then. Love the access to the beach though, just lovely.

Lovely place
Beautiful place. We did enjoy the room and the restaurant. It was cool and windy so we could not enjoy the pool or the outdoors, but we would love to come back when it is nicer.

2/10 Poor

The view was spectacular but the room was disappointing.. The table surface was sticky and had multiple stains - it looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks. The bathroom did not have an exhaust and had an open shower and a tile floor. The flow was very hard to control leading to a very slippery floor in the entire bathroom. At one point, there were black sand time sediments in the water from the sink. The room service forgot to replace some of the towels - we also found the room service key left in the door when we returned to the room. There was no wifi or cellular signal our entire stay. Breakfast was included in our stay and the selection was good with average food quality. The staff added the wrong & higher priced drinks to the room charge which added 20 mins to our check out because the receptionist was a trainee with no support. The overall experience was quite disappointing.
