Pleasant stay, centrally situated, close to beach, restaurants, marina. Staff helpful, booked tours, hire car and airport shuttle. Cannot recommend Krystal transport for return trip to airport, transport late and we arrived at the airport with only minutes before check in closed, much too much stress.
