Whales Way Ocean Retreat, Wilderness
Beach Room not as advertised online
the "beach room" photos are misleading. you cannot see the beach from the room and in fact there is no beach near the room. The house is set across the street from a cliff that looks over the ocean. I was not able to receive a wifi connection in this room, as it is isolated down on the ground level away from the rest of the house. The air conditioner did not work, which was why I booked the room in the first place. No effort was ever made to fix this. On the first morning the manager woke me up to serve me breakfast in my room, in which case I'm sure she had the best of intentions but I was dealing with the stomach flu and would have preferred to sleep in late and not eat. The lock to the door was in need of repair, as it was very difficult to work with and always took several minutes to lock/unlock. I left after 2 nights and moved on to a different hotel. I wouldn't stay here again.
