Right across from the beach and in the heart of the hotel district, this hotel, consisting entirely of one-bedroom suites, is ideal for families and long term visitors who want a bit more room and the chance to prepare their own meals. Size and set ups of the suites vary a bit; more expensive higher floor rooms are quieter and offer decks with spectacular views of the sea and sunsets. But all the suites are airy, well maintained, and contain kitchenettes, a living room with twin beds, and a living area with a sofa that can also sleep two, plus a separate bedroom for two. There’s no pool, but the hotel does boast a fine rooftop deck with a Jacuzzi, free underground parking, and the option of plans with breakfast included. There are all kinds of discounts for families, long-termers, and for American AARP and AAA members. When we went to press in late 2013, the hotel was under renovation, so we expect the rooms to look extra spiffy by the time you read this. The staff is unusually helpful, and the entire building is non-smoking.
