    Wood fire with seating very nice. Full moon gave an awesome view at night.

    Older but adequate.

    We liked that the property was close to the ocean and we had use of the fire pits.

    There was no attendant in the office so we had to go next door. There was food in our fridge,old coffee in the coffee pot and the tub was broke. This made me question the integrity of the entire room. There was no way to change rooms cause no one was there. When I complained they were only going to give me a 40 dollar credit, but they charged my account instead and had to be refunded both.
