The Blue Fish felt like home away from home. It was cozy, clean, and updated! The beach is only a 5-10minute walk, and the amenities are great. There's really not much more to ask for, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! Franco and Lena, thank you for such a wonderful and comfortable stay.

The rooms were clean and comfortable (not a pet room). front desk (so nice/forgot her name) was very helpful and kept a great eye on the property. We did use the pool and we all enjoyed the ease of walking right to our rooms.... More

Let me start off by saying if you are looking for a fancy luxury hotel this is not the place for you. If you are looking for super clean comfortable accommodations this fits the bill perfectly. My kids and I spent 3 nights here. Room was good size with kitchen. Nice sitting area in front of room with rocking chairs.... More

We stayed one night in room #7. This is not a pet room. The room was immaculate clean. There were 2 double beds, a chest and a small refrig in the front area. The bathroom was in the middle and a second bedroom area with a double bed was behind the bathroom. Each bed room area had a flat screen... More

To start off our room had no outside seating! We got stuck near the corner which is behind another part of the hotel. As soon as we opened the door we heard dogs barking in the room next to us! Every time we made a sound these dogs would bark. It seems the party next door was rarely there -... More
