  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We had an amazing little vacation, our room was elegant and clean, the view of the bay was beautiful. We spend most of our stay in the whirlpool and hot tub! The food was delicious and the servers were very nice and helpful. It was our first vacation as a couple, it was perfect and exceeded all of our expectation!

    It would have been a better stay if it wasn't for Covid and some amenities being restricted or not offered. It was still a pleasant stay. Very clean. ALL employees we had interactions with were very polite and courteous. Will be staying again for sure.

    We have stayed here before and always enjoy returning. Rooms are spacious, quiet and clean. Beds are super comfortable. The only thing we would have liked in the room was a microwave especially during these Covid times when dining options are limited.

    Very nice place on the interior. Clean rooms, nice decor. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent. The grounds by the bay were a bit unkempt. The ad promoted a view of the bay, but our room faced dumpsters. Overall though, an enjoyable stay.
