Great Location...Great Service by staff. We are 70+ seniors we do wish there was and elevator for us staying on the 2nd floor. But overall a very pleasing stay. We only wish we could surf and play in the bay below our room again.

We LOVE the Sea & Sand! Clean, great location, would recommend to anyone! Staff is super friendly and helpful, breakfast is more than adequate, evening wine & cheese. We’ve stayed 3 times and each time we like it more than the last!!
