We stayed here for two nights with three other couples. Great place...small but perfect. We stayed in units 21 & 22 and they were perfect for two couples each...very, very clean and comfortable. It's great having a kitchen, even if we didn't cook. Just being able to have room to put out snacks, make coffee and have dessert is wonderful. I was surprised to see that they provide shampoo, condition and lotion in the bathrooms and starter packets of coffee (decaf & regular) with sugar & creamer as well as a small bottle of dish detergent to clean up.
The pool and hot tub are great. Our friends told us that the area around the pool has been redone since they were there last year, and it is great to know that the owners continually upgrade where needed. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available and it is a short walk to the beach.
The resort is close to a small shopping area where we ate breakfast each morning at the Blue Dolphin and had dinner one evening at the Lazy Lobster. Both are delicious and a great value.
This is one place to which we will definitely return.
