This is a nice relaxing resort for all ages. It is right on the ocean, and most rooms overlook the water. The resort has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, spa facilities and surrounded by nature, allowing short and long walks. We did some bike riding which was awesome with nice trails along the bay and river. Bikes are... More

We come to the island 1-2 times a year to visit family but rarely are we tourists in the area. We purchased an exceptional deal thru travelzoo to stay at the kingfisher for 5 nights and we are so glad we did.

A small effort could have made a difference. The sour cream in the fridge... More
