When we booked this getaway 6 months ago, we had no idea how much we'd need a break from serious parent illnesses, hard winters, and teenagers. This resort provided a wonderful retreat. Sure, we had the perfect #5 room- and it was worth every penny. The place was busy enough we couldn't find a good time to peek in the other rooms, but we know they were smaller and less expensive. However, the grounds were beautifully landscaped, the pool a great respite from the ocean, and details like fresh towels, beach umbrellas and chairs, and borrowing books made it lovely. The breakfast was very nice and offered an opportunity to get to know others, or just load up and go back to your room or private table. For a 48 hour trip without a car, we were able to access great restaurants, a great beach, the water taxi, and nightlife without walking more than one or two short blocks. Typically, I'm a beach snob and if I can't stay ON the beach, it ain't worth it. However, this resort changed my mind. It was safe, easy, super clean, and charmingly beautiful. The owners also went out of their way to welcome my husband and I, and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks, Matt, we needed that!
