We stayed in a privately-owned condo on the property. Looks as though a hurricane took it out years ago? There is some construction and attempts to rehab the property going on.

How can any respectable "resort" expect to rent out a houseboat unit that is not even secure against intrusion from the locals for a $135.00 price tag? Aside from the fact that the houseboat adjacent to the reserved unit was under water, the keys to the front door fit the unit next door!! Definitely NOT worth half of what these... More
