We stayed here for three days in May of 2004, and I have never had a better experience with a vacation, either in a hotel or a cruise ship. The hotel is located right across the street from a very wide, soft sand beach (be careful crossing the street) with plenty of chaise lounge chairs provided. The beach is very quiet, with parasailing and jet-skiing available a few minutes away; activities in which we did not partake. We had a one-bedroom unit on the ground floor, fifteen feet away from a good size, heated pool with enough tropical foliage that you did not notice the street on the other side. The room as extremely clean, and had all kitchen items furnished - except a blender. The a/c window unit was in the bedroom and was pretty loud, but with windows in the front and back of the unit, we got a good breeze. Bathroom seemed newly renovated and was very clean and fresh. The local taverns were VERY local, with a clientele that supplied us with lots of stories. Local dining was iffy - don't expect too much. Duffy's was horrible, Sandbar nice but touristy and Banana Cabana was small but had great lunch food. The hotel staff was very friendly and laid back. We were very pleasantly surprised at the overall quality and attention to detail at this property. We would do it again.
