                • Location is the best and the beach is excellent. Not noisy at all and a 10 minute walk from the boisterous places of pb, coffee, hot chocolate and tea in the lobby is always available at your fingertips, the rooms have been thoroughly renovated. Also, the restaurant has beachfront dining and the food is quite tasty, the pool is perfectly adequate.

                  The hotel is not well maintained, the local phone calls are very expensive.

                  Wet bar area counter is very high and the place is not perfect. Very poor water pressure aswell and screen falling off dead bugs.

                  Awful place, the price was less than half of the Catamaran Inn and the bathroom was ridiculous. The sliding screen door was broken and the pillows were the most uncofortable pillows I ever have slept on.

                • Great location, just returned from a stay at the Surfer and excellent Staff. A perfect comfortable bed.

                  Bad room layout.

                • Our view from the third floor to the beach was great and the room itself was fine.

                • Nice location and a classic beach place. The staff were great and the bathroom was clean and worked well.

                  The rooms were tiny and really not that impressive.

                • Most of the rooms at the surfer offer a spectacular view, the hotel is in a great location and beds are comfy and the pool was nice.
