We stayed one night at the point. The hotel is very nice despite they told us is 40 years old hotel. The new owner is doing a good job but still needs some fixes at the dock wooden area. Anyway we really enjoyed the beach, the amazing view, and the kind staff. Foo at the restaurant is average but you... More

The Point could not be better located on the island, right at the ferry landing and the end of the runway. It's right on the water, and the views from the rooms and the easy access to the ocean are phenomenal. If you want a very relaxing, no frills time at the beach this place will work great for you....

Very nice accommodations. Clean room, with terrific views and good AC. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially impressed with the bar staff and the incredible piña colatas and Rissoto balls. I had an excellent experience on the island and am looking foward to it next year.

Singularly located on a rocky point carved mysteriously with ancient sea life, every room offers an ocean view from its private deck. "Would you like sunrise or sunset?" Really?! The Welcome Center, an internet cafe, and the dive shop are all just steps away. Imagine taking breakfast in The Point's main open air gazebo, watching the fishermen head out for... More
