We were at the Holiday Inn Nov. 12-17. The beach was awfull. Cloudy water, sharp shells while enterting the water, mushy gross bottom, & odor. From what I understand the smell & mushy stuff is rotted sea weed. Loved the Holiday Inn but won't stay there again if the beach stays the same. Walked up to the Playa Linda and what a difference! Water was still cloudy, but smooth bottom & no odor.
Hope this helps!
