A little overpriced but location is great!

We wanted a hotel with ocean view and easy access to the beach and this hotel did not disappoint. The location is amazing, right across from the beach, with many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Parking is free, which is a big bonus.
We did have a bit of a hiccup at check in. We arrived at 2:30 and were told that our room would hopefully be ready within an hour, and though check in time is at 3 PM, they really mean "after 3 PM." First time I hear of this interpretation of check in time. We were promised a phone call as soon as our room was ready, never got it. We were hanging out on the patio enjoying the view for a while. At 4 PM we finally went back to front desk and they told us they were *just* informed that all rooms were now ready, including ours.
Aside from that minor issue, rest of our experience was good. Hotel provides towels, chairs, boogie boards and sand toys for beach goers. Breakfast was pretty decent. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would probably return if staying in oceanfront property is a requirement. Otherwise, it is rather expensive. less
