This property is amazing. The staff is extraordinarily friendly, and made us feel welcome and at home. They genuinely seem to love their jobs in the hospitality business! Our girls trip was unforgettable thanks to the PostCard Inn. It has everything you would want on vacation...tiki bar with live music, pool and poolside bar, fresh seafood right on the dock, jet skis, and a nice restaurant Shula Burger to have a quick burger or an awesome filet. So low key and we didn't want to leave! Definitely two thumbs up.

Room Tip: We stayed in the corner suite on the 5th floor, it had a FULL kitchen, FULL dining room and FULL liv...

When we got to our hotel the cheerful young clerk told us we were upgraded to an ocean view but I think this was really to keep guests contained to a certain area. The room was unusual in that the toilet and sink were in one room and the extra large shower was a separate area with no door. This means all the towels and soap were near the shower when there were none near the toilet. Also if you were sharing a room and you did not want the other person to see you dress or undress then you would probably want them to leave because there was no door on the shower room. If they opened the door as you stepped from the shower everyone outside could see in your room. We asked for restaurant suggestions and every place they suggested had entrees in the $25+ range. The one plus was there were several bars on the grounds. Beware because this place charged a resort fee-- I have no idea what that was for. I assume it was for walking on the beech. Over all the resort was ok but a bit pricey for a room with no breakfast included and a weird configuration. Oh and one last thing, there were several rings on the window sills and counter tops and dresser where people had set down there glass and left a ring and the cleaning staff had not cleaned up the areas.

We had 40 people from Chicago and 10 from Charlotte, NC, few of whom knew one another. Everyone parked their cars on Wednesday and enjoyed the onsite bars, bands, pools, cabanas and water sports. Rooms were fine and kept clean, we didn't go there to sit inside. Our reception party at Celebration Island was a "hit", wedding was just great,great fun, along with steel drum band. Everyone dressed casually and danced until 2:00 am. In the end all 50 people were telling one another how great it was to meet and get to know them. If I had another daughter I would tell her to do a destination wedding and go to PostCard Inn.

Room Tip: All beach front rooms are great, ones near the office do pick up some music late in evening.

When we got to the room, i wasn't impressed at all. They were renovating the rooms and our bathroom was not complete. The management moved us (i mean we transferred our things ourselves) to another room, and when our room was done, we moved back into it. This wasn't something i had in mind for our vacation- but these things happen!
We had an oceanfront suite, having a full view of the beach was very nice. The rooms are comfortable enough. The restaurants are in the area and water sports are available in the facility. It's great for families and friends who are looking to do a lot of fun activities (kayak, jet skis, water jet, snorkeling, eco-tours, diving, etc.).
We had a good time towards the end of our stay.

Stayed at the Postcard inn at the end of August. First impressions were not good. Prison style landings with doors to match. Room was nicely decorated but the bathroom was really not good. A chipped collapsed bath with peeling paint isn't really what you want on holiday. The beds were good but unfortunately even ear plugs couldn't mute the air conditioning unit.
Pool area was nice. Bar could do with some TLC. Drinks prices were good. Sun loungers/beach towels had seen better days. Reception area was nice as were the staff in there. However, a certain youngish lady in the Raw Bar was not what i would call customer focused. Never in my days, have i experienced rudeness like it...."Don't know whose these drinks belong to- you'll have to sort it" and shouting at my mum "Your husband has left without paying the check" when her colleague had picked it up and to then storm up and demand her tip wasn't going to wash well. The only tip i have is CUSTOMER SERVICE and as explained to this girl on the day -to leave her stinking attitude at home. A nice touch as we were leaving "Have a nice day" shouted at the top with just a dollop of sarcasm.
The boat guys were brill. Recommend a trip out. Fire pits were a nice touch. Some good places to visit.
Overall, we had a good time. I don't think i would return. It's a shame as the rooms are nice but the bathrooms and stairs really are bad.
