A Bit of a Disappointment

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Buildings and furnishings
Location: On the beach, but bothersome panhandlers.
Beautiful area and beach, but run down. Staff was very friendly, but food was nothing to write home about. Our bed was so hard, I had a backache every morning. It's a shame...at one time this resort I'm sure was wonderful.
