10/10 Exceptional

Spring Break 2022
House keeping didn’t come every day due to Covid but if we needed anything the front desk was very accommodating. I would suggest to anyone stopping at a Publix before getting to the island as this room had a large fridge, oven, glasses and silverware for snacks or even making a pizza at night. Would stay again! Right in the beach! Pool is close if you get too hot and want to cool off before shelling or sitting under the umbrella and beach chairs which they provide at no cost! They also have nice beach towels so I wouldn’t have packed ours! The hotel was quite too!
