    The property is right by the ocean and you can reach the beach in seconds. The view is great for ocean front units. The staff/manager is very friendly and knowledgeable. The suite is not very big but with lots of details. The fireplace is very cool. Our suite had only one washroom. The pillows were a bit smelly and the beds seems old and making sounds while turning. What I like is that they charged a reasonable price for a group of 4 adults. No big price jump for adding more guests when sharing the exact same space. It would be nice if they have two stations for showers and changing rooms to separate male and female in the hot tub room. Overall I enjoyed the stay and I would mostly go back again.
