Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.

The living are not the only ones to visit the luxurious hotel. There are also ghosts that stay at the hotel. The most famous ghost at the hotel is that of Kate Morgan. Kate died at the hotel at the age of 24.

The stories related to her death claim she was a married woman who went to the hotel to have a rendezvous with her lover. Other stories claim her male companion abandoned her on her trip to the hotel. She committed suicide after being alone for five days.

Since her death a broad range of unexplainable activity has occurred in the hotel. Televisions that turn off and on, lights that flicker, voices and footsteps are just a few things that happen. Other people claim to have seen Kate's ghost on the beach and around the hotel.
