There is hardly a single thing to not like about this unique boutique hotel. The setting is perfect and the rooms all with a great view of the water. From the minute you land until you leave you are well taken care of by the friendly staff. Food is superb. Walking on the beach or town,great. This place just exudes charm and class.
