Our stay was a disaster from the beginning and was atrocious in the end! We tried to give them some leniency due to the hurricane but their overall service and ability to handle situations is a disgrace to the hospitality business. Our original stay was to be from Sunday Oct 9, 2016 for 6 nights and check out on Oct...

Wonderful experience. Great staff, very accommodating and helpful, 3-BR condo we stayed in was wonderful other than the master kind bedroom was quite a bit hotter than the other rooms in the unit. Will definitely book a stay here again! Probably very soon if the price is right!

Upon arrival was not given room that reservation was made for, not even same bldg. Requested a room not over looking pools but that is what we were put in. We waited seemed like forever at desk when arrived and then seemed we were rushed out. Will think twice before staying here again.

Crow's Nest cafe makes good burgers and fries and Compass Rose had good breakfasts. Best part was the oceanfront balcony. A favorite place to sit and read a book - in late November we...

“Carpet was dingy (needed cleaning)and not vacummed, bathroom set up is not private enough especially if another couple was staying in room. Curtains over balcony windows are old and need dusting. Photos of property are misleading.”
