Stayed at the Sailport Waterfront Suites for a couple of nights. The front staff and shuttle drivers were very nice. We did not have a car while we were there so we utilized the shuttle to take us to local restaurants. The rooms were clean but very basic. If you are looking for a plush hotel this isn't it but it is very nice. The view was great of the bay. The pool area and all other areas were kept very clean. The beach area is very small but was not overcrowded when we went but with only a few chairs I bet it is hard to get a chair during a busy time. There is a little shop at the hotel to get snacks and so forth but there are no prices listed. Since we had went to the local "market" to get things to have in our condo to snack on and have for breakfast, we were a bit gun shy of buying anything from the little shop because the prices at the "market" were outrageous. The market is actually a very very small convenience store and seems to be the only one around. We went to the Sailport to relax and we were able to do plenty of it and really enjoyed our stay. You won't be able to enter the water at the hotel because of the rocks but there is a beach really close that has shark nets to keep the sharks away. There is a nice fire pit area, grills, and a small fishing pier. The area is set up so you can have a great view of the sunset.
