Notable Quotes

We had an overall good experience with this hotel. The location was perfect. Beach access was easy and immediately out the doors of the hotel after passing a pool. If you have kids, there is a wooden play set for the little ones and a beach volleyball set for the big kids. Our suite was divided in two rooms (bedroom/family room) with a pullout bed in the family room. There were tv’s in each which was nice. I would stay there again and bring the family!
