The hotel is easier to find than the name implies. Even arriving late at night as I did. I had a room in the main building, which was pleasant and clean, but had a tiny bathroom. In fact the bathroom was so small that you had to straddle the toilet to get into the shower! Otherwise it was a nice... More

Don't let the slick website and great photos fool you! The setting is spectacular, but sadly the accommodation, service and staff leave A LOT to be desired. I called to make my reservation as I wanted to know exactly which tent I would have as I wanted a great view and was willing to pay for it. I was told... More

We stayed in a one of the tent house suites and had a wonderful time at this resort (which was helped by great weather). The view from the tent deck was magical as was the boardwalk journey to get to it. The bed was amazingly soft and the tent had a great rain shower and whirlpool bath. And where else... More

First of all let me start by saying that this is a unique resort, but this is not a high end luxury resort as they claim. My husband and I have traveled all over the world and stayed at some wonderful places, this is not one of those. I have read countless reviews on here, and especially the negative ones... More

If you can afford the price, definitely go for one of the tents. We love the view & the fresh air! Being in the woods but with all the luxury amenities is truly amazing! I even manage to write which I haven't done for a long time. You get to be very creative when you are in touch with nature.... More

We had a three night stay booked at this resort, with two rooms with ocean views in the main building. Each room had two queen size beds which meant my husband and I could have had one each while our three teenage kids were squashed into two beds. One of the boys decided he would rather sleep on the floor... More

This is a beautiful location and if you are looking for a nice ocean view and don't care about the room, this location may be for you. I stayed in a room that resembled the old outside entrance 'rowhouse' style with two floors. Although they have attempted to put new bedding and curtains in the room, its definitely a very... More

We stayed in the cabins... the one in front of the septic field. Mistake! There is both the odor and the view is blocked by the whole septic processing station. The cabin is showing it's age - that was noticeable when getting into bed on the far side of the bed. A definite slope of the floor. Can't say how... More

I stayed here for one night this August for a wedding in one of the tent suites. To sum it up it is not worth it when there is new places like the Pointhouse that are close enough (at half the price), and the service/cleaning might be better. Good points: -View is nice -Nice to be located at resort if... More
