We stayed there last November, my son liked watching the crabs on the rocks below in the ocean. Nice place, the managers were very nice and helpful. There is no phone in the rooms, and no aircon, but just a ceiling fan and the breeze outside. There was a nice continental breakfast in the morning. And you have to arrive early for good parking. We stayed in one room the first night, it was just a room, and the second night we moved to another room with a small kitchenette. The bathroom in the first room the first night was a little small and cramp, especially around the toilet area. The bathroom was larger the second night. The waves can be heard at night, if you're a light sleeper it may bother some people, but for me it was fine. There is a nice white sand beach about a 5 minute drive from the hotel. They do have a nice little swimming pool. The managers let my son light the tiki torches in the evening, and he enjoyed that. I noticed in other reviews that some people complained about highway noise, but it didnt' bother me. Also this may change, if you want to make a reservation you have to phone it in, and can't do it online. If I remember correctly, I think they only take cash, and no credit cards.
