Love the property just didn’t like being so way far back across a road away from the beach. The little self contained cabin was nice enough the beds comfy. Our kid enjoyed the jetted tub and it was clean. My only disappointment was the room location. Felt like it could have been a room anywhere when the magic of this place is the proximity to the ocean. If this is important to you too be sure to ask about where your room is located. We were not here long enough to enjoy much of what this place has to offer. Drove down and parked by playground to access beach. Spa looked great did not go to restaurant.
