Visited this hotel for a writing retreat and was truly amazed by the personal touch and going the extra mile attitude from the staff! The setting is tranquil and at times it felt like we were on some exotic island!!

Overnight stay for work, was given honeymoon suite practically on the bay. Room had awesome views, was well equipped and a nice touch was the complimentary snack platter waiting in the room on arrival. Staff were friendly and helpful - great stay, pity it was only for one night.
