I can't say enough about our amazing stay at The Whaler. My first impression as we drove up to the lobby was, "Wow" this is paradise!" The gardens and grounds are filled with colorful local vegatation and a beautiful koi pond. (Great photo op!) The hotel/ condos were built in the mid 70's but they have done a good job updating without compromising
the aesthetics. We stayed in tower one room 316. The room was very clean and quiet with a very comfy king size bed. Although I was not planning on cooking much, the updated kitchen had all the amenities needed to cook a full Thanksgiving meal! We had a garden view from the lanai that wasn't too bad. We got a warm breeze and could see the blue sparkling ocean and hear the chirping birds daily.
The pool area was small and well maintained, but we spent most of our time on the beach, which was just steps away.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a kiosk near the beach that rents out umbrellas and chairs, but the hotel has them for free. Snorkeling was fun right outside the hotel but a quick walk down to BlackRock was a better place to see lots of sea life including some huge sea turtles!The sunsets were Marvy!
Keep in mind that the property is smaller than some of the surrounding hotels, which gives it a residential quality. That was a plus for us! We will definitely be back and highly recommend The Whaler for a relaxing retreat where you can recharge your batteries!
