I had a very pleasant stay at Sonesta for girls getaway. Right on the beach and the staff was so pleasant and informative about things to do in the area. Not within walking distance to downtown, but you can take the bus, shuttle, taxi, or water taxi (with the bus being the most affordable). Taxi to downtown is no more... More

A little background behind our stay at this "motel". We cruised on the Oasis of the Seas for the 4th of July and we needed a one night hotel stay after the cruise.

The beds are small, they don't fit 2 people!!!! Small swimming pool too. The only advantage is that you have the beach in front, only a few steps. Location in a zone with limited bars and restaurants.

Dear Anniki84, Thank you for your feedback.
