    We did not book with breakfast included but perhaps they have those deals as well! They have a lovely restaurant with breakfast buffet or a la carte. They also have coffee to go in the lobby of restaurant

    I never used the pool I just went to the beach and tide pools. So Unless it says otherwise, maybe ask the hotel staff?

    all pets stay in the first floor. the first floor is below the main floor so is somewhat basement-esque. that being said they dont have an ocean view. they mostly have a pool view.
