I was here for a week-long training. Found staff very friendly and the grounds/beach well kept and beautiful. Best part was the great food and location. Hotel rooms are aging. Time for new AC and showers.

Over all we had a very relaxing vacation. Take extra money for beach rentals games and drinks and food at pool side. No ice machine even though ice is available at your request. Don't depend on wifi your room I had to use it in the lobby so free really was not convenient.

Everything was wonderful.....some areas needed a bit of updating.... the inside was beautiful and outside by the beach. Chairs needed to be rented on the beach.... . Definitely a beachy vibe, very different than your standard hotel... and the food was really good.

Very comfortable, relaxing and convenient. Wonderful staff makes you feel welcomed. Made for a great business environment to have casual meetings. Would come again if given the opportunity. If you enjoy fishing look up Capt. Jot Owens for a fantastic fishing trip.

Room should have been cleaner. Toothpaste on the faucet, trash behind the coffee maker and dirty coffee cup. Such a nice location was offset by this. The check-in staff could have been friendlier than they were as well.

This place is perfectly located. Views of the ocean are awesome from the rooms. The bathrooms could use some updates... they didn't reflect the same contemporary feel that is in the room. Breakfast was great. Menu pricing at the resort was high compared to the local fare. With the local food being so close and good, it may help if...

The Blockade Runner is a very nicely apportioned hotel that has been updated to reflect a very modern structure with incredible outdoor features. The room size is just right. Small bathroom, but well equipped. Very friendly staff and well maintained facility.

Overall a great facility with beautiful views of the ocean and sound. Lots of fun activities were offered although the weather wasn't good enough to participate. The Wi-Fi is very slow for trying to complete work tasks. They offer a FREE car service to any business and/or restaurant on the island...what a GREAT benefit since parking is limited and allows...
