I really liked this place a lot. It's a small Boutique style hotel. The grounds are really beautiful. The breakfast was included in our room rate and it was a very good continental breakfast. Some people came to breakfast in their hotel bathrobes and brought their little dogs with them. I just loved that. I really like the casual elegance of this place. It's quiet and very dog friendly, the rooms are private and the common areas are really quite nice. The pool area has plenty of lounge chairs. The bar was staffed by the pool so we could order drinks and appetizers and gaze at the water.
The pool could maybe use some updating. It was a little cold in the pool when we were there. I don't think they heat the pool, or at least they didn't when we were there. They had free kayaks for you to use. I thought it was refreshing to stay somewhere that didn't nickel and dime you everytime you turn around. It's so nice to have these free amenities! I really think the owner's of this resort know what they are doing.
Another great thing was that they had a whole bunch of different magazines, some board games etc in the bar area. How nice to grab a magazine and lounge in your chair by the water with a drink. These little amenities make the whole experience so enjoyable. the location is close to a number of great restaurants (we love Morada Bay for a casual dinner on the water with live music)
We will definitely be back, and next time we will bring our little dogs!
