This is an exceptionally gorgeous property with fantastic rooms overlooking the gorgeous beach. Exploring the ocean during low tide is a lot of fun and can find lots of interesting ocean life. Once the tide comes in the swimming is excellent and the pool is very enjoyable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were one of only 3 bookings at the property, so we seemed to have the beach and pool all to ourselves, which was wonderful. The salt water showers were a bummer after spending the day in the ocean and in the salt water pool, hopefully that is something they will upgrade one of these days. The beachfront rooms do have stunning views and are very spacious but the bathrooms could use a shower curtain as the floor gets very wet from the shower spray based on the design. Only drink the beer or wine, as the mixed drinks were very sour and not very good. The food can also be a bit hit or miss – some items were delicious, others tasted like they were cooked in the brackish water at the property and much too salty.
