We like the fact that it had a tiki bar on the property one of the few bars along the beach

10/10 Exceptional

We started off a bit on the rough side but the manager Dawn came to the rescue and immediately corrected the issue. We had a great stay, beach was breathtaking, pool was also a welcome change. The rooms are clean, not huge but certainly adequate since not much time was spent inside. Lanai was refreshing in the evening. The outside bar offered live music most nights which I truly appreciated. Surrounding area offered fine dining. Don’t forget to rent a boat and go fishing, another great way to spend the day. Definitely family friendly as is the island. Would go back again. Beware the no-see-ums, bring bug repellent although they feasted on me my husband didn’t get one bite!

We had a great stay! The property is beautiful and we loved the fact that it was a relatively quiet resort (no partiers). The amenities were great (bike rentals, kayaks, paddle boards) and the staff were all super friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had a cute, beachy vibe, with a great view! We would definitely stay here again!

West Wind was perfect for my trip. Steps away from the beach, heated pool with a restaurant/bar! Free bike rentals, kayaks, and paddle boards. Another restaurant on the property that was open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Will definitely stay here again.
