The hotel is average for its category which translates to very nice. The restaurant however is superb! The chef is truly outstanding! Best fish I have ever eaten...perfectly cooked (not easy) and sauced. Dinner here was the highlicht of our trip.

The shopping and golf was convenient just up or down Hwy 17. Easy access and close to everything we wanted. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

Highly recommend. Staff was very friendly and the property was kept very clean. Easy access to area attractions. The valet/bell hop provided us with great information on where to eat like the "locals do. Would definitely stay again and plan on doing so.
