    "look over" or "look out onto"

    The hotel room ____________ the beach.
    I filled the blank with "looks over" , but my teacher said that "looks out onto" is correct.
    I've never caught the phrase "look out onto" and I can't find it in my dictionary too!
    Which phrase is correct?
    I hope you will help me. Thank you.
