Mourelatos was a great experience and can’t wait to go back. I gave it a 5 star for its’ 2 star rating.
The room was fine and plenty of space for the 3 of us. Bathrooms were very small and if you are on the bottom floor then you will hear creaking from the upstairs room, but besides that it was great. We asked for a toaster in our room, which already had a mini frig and microwave. Great for making waffles, toast etc, for the morning. The beds were very comfortable too.
The location can’t be beat and the pictures don’t lie. The staff was great and very helpful. The beach was so nice with beach chairs and umbrellas. There is a water trampoline, rafts, kayaks, sand toys, hammock and a propane fire pit. There is also bbq’s that you can use during your stay. I can’t say enough about this place…I will be back for sure.
The ice cream shack across the street is owned by the resort and is great to have a snack in the evenings. Love the bistro table and chairs outside each room. Door was left open a lot during the day and evening…I always felt safe and I am a single mom traveling with my kids.
Safeway is located within 1 mile away and very convenient.
Caliente Mexican Restaurant –We ate in the restaurant and found it very pricy and the food was not very good. There was a great balcony for the bar area and that looked nice, but I would not go back for dinner.
Jiffy’s Pizza was very close and you could walk to it but we had it delivered….very good.
Captain Jon’s – again very pricey but it was delish! Had the rib-eye steak and it was so tender and tasty with great service. In the summer the larger part of the restaurant is closed, so we ate at the smaller place on the water where the bar is located. I had my 2 kids there (10 & 11) and even though it looked more for adults they didn’t treat me any different and they did have a kids menu (it was not advertised).
Char-Pit - Good tasty burgers
Miniature Golfing – Went to Carnelian Bay and found a new golf place that the kids loved. There was one in King Beach too, but the one in Carnelian Bay looked newer and nicer.
Northstar Village - Nice day trip to walk around. They have roller skate rentals during the summer and ice skating during the winter.
This was a wonderful trip and we hated to leave. I can’t wait to go back. This was just a great place and location.
