There are three main types of room, there are beach view which I believe are superb, then there are non-beach view in the main building and then there are three or four rooms that are called 'Island' and you really do not want them. Their views are either car park or you are right over the pool where everyone can... More

The location, staff, and the sunsets were all amazing at the Mainsail Beach Inn. We even got lucky and got to watch sea turtles being released into the ocean, just steps from the Inn. We will be back!

I won this trip from a radio station so I didn't have to pay to stay, but we were still treated great by the staff. Clean rooms, close to beach, shopping & restaurants. I highly recommend staying here. The Island is like going to the keys.
