Just peaceful , great trip … nice hotel And all around … highly recommended!!!! Can’t wait to go back…

Okay room. Clean. Good coffee bar and lobby bar. Short walk across the street to beach. Basic bedding; not highest quality.

Loved our stay, ocean access and amenities were amazing!

The location was great! It was peaceful and relaxing. A perfect place to go to chill & recharge. The room was very clean and all staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurants were close by and food was great! We will definitely be back!

It is an older quaint updated motel/hotel. I give it 4 star rating. The fact that it's smaller help with people traffic. It was perfect. There seemed to be no waiting at all for anything. Many time I had the front desk, restaurant or gym to myself and it located in the heart of the action at the end of the street so you're not locked or buried for in/out access. I stayed in the Bugalow facility one unit remove from the sand so it was ideal for my stay. It is a two-story building so there's s no concern of many floors crumbling down from above. Great breakfast place right accros the street too. The only slight negative it the coffee/ice cram bar closes at 3pm. I think it should be open until 8-9PM.

I liked the rooms and the facilities in general. The pool is small, a little disappointed. Is a hotel with personality. It´s a shame that the cafeteria it´s just a Starbucks and it closes at 3 pm! The staff is nice and friendly.

Plunge is great. Nice lobby with coffee shop and bar. Right across the street from a nice beach that’s great for family’s. Great part of town.

Gorgeous resort! The pool area was great with a fun beach bar right next to the pool and beach! Awesome drinks and good beach food. The beach area was amazing. Chairs & umbrella available for you to use all day! I would recommend this place and we will defiantly be back!

Nice hotel in walking distance to restaurants and stores.

Fantastic location and amazing service! Will be back again very soon!

Great hotel, the front desk staff were excellent. The location is great and convenient with the beach nearby and restaurants less than 10 mins walk away. The restaurant on site like the Octupus is only open on the weekends due to COVID but the other two cafe and restaurants on site are operating. Lastly, the housekeeping staff always made sure the rooms were clean and pleasant. I would def stay there again.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay… until it was time to park our car. The parking attendant wasn’t accommodating to allow us to park while my husband was getting the parking pass. He made things more difficult than need be. And when I asked him where to park he was rude and dismissive. I would think paying guest at the resort would be accommodated as much as possible.

Checking was Horrendous

loved the beach bar/bikes/outdoor showers/beach chairs/need more!!! music/location!

Quiet, on beach, friendly staff

Check in was very easy with Patrick and he explained everything the resort had to offer.

The staff was very helpful and kind. The rooms were very clean.

Thanks for staying with us! Next time you're here, check out Backflip, our beach bar and kitchen. They have excellent fish tacos, burgers, salads and more! You can also grab breakfast at Octopus, our lobby restaurant, on Saturdays and Sundays. The avocado toast and steak hash are both amazing ... as is everything else on the menu!
