Wow, this hotel is amazing! It feels like a luxury hotel at a mid-range price. The rooms are spotless and the bed huge and comfortable. The bathroom is so clean and the shower is huge. It is beautiful beachy modern. The restaurant downstairs is fantastic and the service is outstanding. I would definitely stay again!

We were unfortunate to have a first floor view of the parking lot. Half of the rooms face the lot, so be sure to request ocean or pool view if that is important for your stay. We would have liked to spend more time in the room or balcony, but on the first floor it wasn't possible unless you like... More

This is a beautiful place. Exactly the kind of place my husband and I love to stay at...right on the water, and a beautiful pool area. We had an exceptionally clean room, and quiet, even though we had a room over looking a very busy pool. Loved the bar area. We will be back!

We were very pleased with our 4 night stay here recently. The only thing that would make the room better would be to have a microwave and actual fridge,even a mini. The staff was all great and the tiki bar fabulous. We went to the pool daily and loved seeing the lizards hanging out! My son and I spent time... More

This hotel was ideal for a family getaway... the private beach was great. The pool is suprisingly 8ft deep! We stayed in the jacuzzi till 11pm. It was quiet and serene. There was a party going on in the tiki area but you couldn't hear it by the jacuzzi.

Staff was superb. Very friendly and helpful. Our room was tastefully decorated, large and comfortable. The pool, beach area and crystal clear water made being outside a relaxing treat. Absolutely can't wait to go back. Side note- my kids got "burrs" in their feet and Eddie( I think) from the bar was so kind and patient getting them out!

We arrived before check in time and were offered luggage storage and towels so that we could use the beach and pool. We loved the pool and beach so much that we stayed long after check in time. The kids had a great time searching for coconuts, swimming in the shallow ocean water, chasing iguanas, and looking for shells. They... More

This hotel has the potential to be great, especially for those with mobility issues as it caters very well in that area, but alas it let itself down for us. We stayed for 3 nights & have just left, having given a short list of points needing attention to the clerk at reception. Our issues were as follows:- 1/ Cleanliness... More

We stayed Sun-Thurs night while my family went on several fishing trips and loved the location, the lobby was adorable, the staff was super friendly. We had a problem with our refrigerator & they sent another one up right away..even stored our food in the employee refrig one night! You get free water bottles & keurig coffee everyday...
