8/10 Very good

I liked the proximity to the beach. I would have liked more restaurants within walking distance. The rooms were decent and clean, but the beds were a bit uncomfortable.

8/10 Very good

This property was perfect for a family vacation and had all of the extras we wanted (free breakfast, a kitchenette, free water sports, free bikes, 2 very nice pools and more). There were a few small things that we would have appreciated - a deadbolt or chain on the door (my 2 year old was able to walk out if we weren’t paying attention 24/7), a line to hang wet clothes in the bathroom or balcony, and wish the property sprayed for bugs better because the noseeums were vicious and we were completely bit up by the end of the trip.

The customer service was excellent and the property had great amenities such as bikes, kayaks, paddle boards and a Tiki Bar with great food. The rooms were very simple (could use some more decor)but very clean and comfortable.

8/10 Very good

The property is beautiful and the staff friendly and helpful. My ONE BIG SUGGESTION is that you guys better get some anti-slip mats in the showers. They're VERY slick when wet and someone's gonna slip and sue the daylights out of you.

Bathroom was a 2x2. Two people could not be in at the same time. Very very dated. Needs a complete renovation. Would not recommend at all.

Decent place for the price
Great experience overall, good amenities but most were with the sister property located next store, not a big deal to walk over and check out a bike or kayak. Being next to the pool was a little loud at night, well some nights but most guests were respectful.

The price for this hotel is really high for the room they provide. Very very old.
