What a wonderful place
We stayed there for 4 days 3/21 to 3/24 and enjoyed every second of our stay.
The staff was great, thanks Linda at the pool bar, Bart on the beach.
The beach was close (right out the door) and beautiful. The sunset's were awesome.
St Armands Circle was nice. We also took the sunset boat from town one night, the band was good and the sights were great along the way.
The mix of hotel guest was younger and older couples about 50% and young families with kids about 50%. We all got along just peachey.
The rooms were ok but when in paradise you don't spend much time in your room.
You won't regret your stay there
