Beautiful, clean, self-contained resort. This resort is an intimate size with an onsite beach just steps outside your door. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are well equipped with lovely decor. Ask for ocean view to enjoy coffee with the sunrise outside your door. The onsite restaurant has the ambience of a casual pub but the food is quality...

From families with small children to marriage ceremonies and retirees, they've got it all! They may not be the swankiest of resorts but their attention to the comfort and needs of their guests is exceptional. We ventured...

Room was up-to-date, clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, silverware, glasses (including wine glasses), dishes, blender, toaster, coffee pot, paper towels, dish detergent - better than many places I have stayed in the past. Could not have asked for a better location or more gorgeous view. Live music at the on-property restaurant. Ample parking. Comfortable beach chairs...

An unbeatable location in the Keys right on a private beach (Atlantic side). We had a second floor (third to the Americans) room looking out to sea. The rooms don't have balconies as such - just chairs and a small table on the walkway across the front of the rooms - so not that private, but people weren't back and...

Very nice modern waterfront room with beautiful view, relaxing, convenient to onsite bar and restaurant. Comfortable beach lounges next to umbrellas, really nice pool and spa, cold bottled water for sitting on the beach or by the pool.

Room very clean and just right and cozy for two. Only complaint was the water edge has lots of shells and rocks and we didn't have ocean shoes which are needed if you want to go into the ocean. Would definitely go back.

Hello and thank you so much for your comments. Sorry about the shells, they do tend to wash up on the beach from time to time. Other than that we're happy to hear that you will be returning again in the near future and we look forward to having you back.

We booked this last minute and found a gem! We stayed in a ocean front King suite with a beautiful view. Everything looked recently updated including granite countertop in the kitchen and the entire room was very clean. It did have a nice big shower but lacked a tub, which was ok for our short stay.
