Thanks for the kind words Phil. We will never offer you non-sea view rooms because of ALL of our rooms face the ocean. Every Room on Every Floor, Every Time.

We don't have BBQ's on premises but there are several barbecue's on the Strand immediately across the road in front of the hotel. These are in covered areas and have seating. They are free to use and very well maintained and you'll get to have your snags right on the beachfront. And if you're cooking, I like my steak Medium-Well. Lol.
