    Beautiful hotel in a great location.

    Our bathroom was so small you really couldn’t sit on the toilet facing forward without being pressed upon the sink.

    Facilities and location

    I decided to pay $750/night (the most expensive stay of my life by a factor of 4) because it was a special occasion -- I was getting engaged. The value I got in return was simply ridiculous. Small room, no room cleaning due to COVID, frustrating breakfast with a cold bread filled with cold eggs, and an outrageous charge of extra $15/day (on top of the $750/night stay) to access good wi-fi. I understand COVID has imposed restrictions on your service, but the least you can do since you are giving us a cold breakfast, making us make up our own bed, and providing us slow internet is to charge an appropriate price for the poor service.

    Romantic, close to shopping, and beach.

    Our room end of hallway. Lots of foot traffic, next to custodial closet, and could hear conversations in neighboring room .

    Nice looking property. Friendly service. Great breakfast.

    Didn't have double room available that was booked. Noisy. Overpriced for what it offered.
