Fodor's Review

A longtime local hangout, this pretty collection of bungalows is clean, comfortable, and well-priced, making it a great option for moderate budgets and families. The cheerful bungalows have orthopedic mattresses, air-conditioning, and ceiling fans, with screened windows if you prefer fresh air at night. Their popular bar Monkey La-La has a happy hour from 4 to 6 and open mic night on Wednesdays to showcase local talent. A lovely pool, board rental, and surf lessons are sure to keep your water time high.
