Just by the water you find this lovely place. Slipway is not only a hotel, it is one of few public open place, shops, restaurants (one named Waterfront), diving school, ship yard, pier, sunset ... In the middle of this you find a hotel with the friendliest staff that I met. The harmony among the staff is affecting me as a guest, makes me feel good and in balance. The pool and bar is the best place to meet new people. Having a beer in the pool at sunset is quality of life (they could have the pool open a little longer and it would have been even better). The neighborhood is safe, I was out running several times with no issues more than the heat - bring some small change to buy water on the way :). Felt like home, I will be back!
