I have been visiting Ocean Beach since I was a child and have stayed in many different hotels and condos. My family really enjoyed this one! It has just about everything you can ask for. One thing they could do to make the experience even better is to add some type of lighting in the outdoor area. One night my family and I bbq'd for dinner and by the time we sat down to eat, it was dark. Other than that, we got extremely lucky with the clear skies and beautiful weather, which allowed us to enjoy gorgeous sunsets right from our yard. You do share the common area with other people staying at the property, but there was enough space for everyone to enjoy. The inside of the condo was nicely decorated and very clean. The kitchen appeared to be newly remodeled and all of the appliances worked well. We really loved the hot tub!!! There are plenty of great restaurants, shops, and beaches within walking distance. All in all, if you are planning a trip to Ocean Beach, with or without kids, this is a great place to stay. We will be back!
