This is not the place to stay if you are expecting white glove service. However, if you are traveling with children, are a couple looking for a quiet relaxed beach vacation or don't want the hassle of needing a car, this is the place for you. The property is a five-acre island with about 50 rooms, each with a private entrance. There is a beach restaurant/bar which serves breakfast and lunch and each room has a kitchenette where a quick dinner can be made or heated. There are also a bbq grills which guests can share. The beach is steps from any room. We stayed for four weeks and there were days when we never left the island or wore shoes. When you feel the need to explore, there are some good restaurants in town or you can rent a car and tour the rest of the island. The hotel was once a five-star hotel; but was devastated by Hurricaine Hugo. It has slowly been coming back to it's original splendor with many renovations. There are hotels with better accomodations, but not location. It is definitely the best of both worlds.
