We have just returned from 2 weeks at Long Beach. We were so pleased to have paid the extra for a beachside bungalow. Money well spent. To wake up to that view every morning was amazing. We're normally one's for spending more time around the pool than the beach, but on this occassion we made an expection. Not a large choice of food, but everything was cooked well and very nice. Not much around the hotel so you might want to hire a car for a few days.
