    Wonderful time!

    We choose this hotel for a girls trip weekend and loved it! Definitely going back...The staff was fantastic, they were so nice and accommodating. The Spa is AMAZING, we went everyday we stayed for a different service. Food was good, and the tacos from the pool bar were the BEST! The hotel was very clean, felt very safe and had the best time time. The hotel is super close to downtown and only 15 min from the airport. Rooms were clean, nothing too fancy but great ocean view, anyways we spent all our time at the pool. Love this place!
