Lovely spot and found it to be peaceful and relaxing. The room was spacious with a comfortable queen size bed as well as a seating area with comfortable chairs giving us a beautiful view of the ocean. We also appreciated having a nice size fridge.

the room had a great view and everything we needed for a weekend away. Everything was clean and comfortable, and very spacious. Checkin process was easy and they were able to accommodate our request for early checkin so we could enjoy an afternoon walk on the beach. Will absolutely be back.

Our suite was lovely - overlooking the sea, and with all the mods and cons needed for a few night getaway... After all the recent rains, the surrounding rivers and falls were teaming with water - quite a sight for sure! Very impressive. Such a great spot for a getaway....

A very comfortable unit with a good view. My pet peeve when I stay in hotels etc. is my ability/inability to get in and out of the bath tub. This one is very deep and no bar to help one. My only complaint. We were made very welcome and staff very helpful and friendly. Recommend this resort highly.

The high light was the ocean view! The condo had most everything we needed, even a dish washer. It was very comfortable and clean! Decor was very nice. I loved that we could just walk to the beach and go for a walk or sit at the table and watch the ocean. Saw some seals. While out on the balcony... More
