The location is wonderful, a short walk to the beach, and what a beach! Blazing sun. White sands a mile wide (ok not that wide) but certainly miles long, great surf, warm blue blue water (on a good day of which there are many). This is the best feature.The rooms are not great but good enough. You are there for the beach not the rooms. This is a place for beach bums, which we aspire to be. Very cute riverside road/walkway in spitting distance. No amenities though, just lodgings.Noisy dogs in the neighbourhood.

I had such a great time and my dogs enjoyed their first ocean holiday as well. Thank you for making that happen.
