    Everyone was very helpful. Check in was super easy and they even took the bags to my room while we went to dinner. The rooms are nice, surf inspired decor. Not super fancy but you are paying for the location and the views from your room. We were on the 5th floor and had our door open all day and night listening to the waves. So peaceful. We did go off season so we got a really good rate compared to high season.

    Nothing.
