Rooms superior, grounds well groomed, access to beach fast and safe with limited steps. Music at the pool bar was great. On site food way too expensive but in-room refrig. Take your own bottled water as the water there is terrible, island wide.

I have stayed here several times and it's always great! A very nice boutique hotel. They are located right on the beach with clean and comfortable rooms, a very good restaurant and pool bar and the staff are very polite and professional.

However from the garish "Miami-themed" lobby (they were WAY off on that one) to the very sad and dirty finishes of the hotel room,...

We stayed here for a spring college tour trip. My family of four, with two teens, really loved this place. It has the feel of a boutique hotel with great amenities and a perfect location. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. We felt welcome the moment we stepped out of the car. The breakfast included...
