9.7 Excellent
Pros:This place is amazing. Pricey, but awesome.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Include onsite amenities like beach chairs and umbrellas, kayaks, and paddleboards. The marketplace, restaurants and pool bar were great bonuses as well.
Cons:Hotel rooms were extremely outdated and not well maintained - this is what prevents me from recommending to others and from staying there again.
9.7 Excellent
2.0 Bad
Cons:I was confirmed and later cancelled by Kayak and its partners. I will never again use Kayak or any of its affiliates.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great place to stay. Quiet at night, but lots to do during the day. Beach is uncrowded (in late April anyway!), lots of chairs and umbrellas available. Nice pool. And zillions of brand new pickleball courts, if that's your thing. Close to other island attractions.
8.0 Great
Pros:Great breakfasts, pool bars, beach. Fine staff, good people. Spacious, two bedroom apartments are the norm. (two couples could easily entertain another two couples there.?)
Cons:George Orwell feel in four story, sameness condo world.?? Only the beach is.. truly natural.?
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Loved that our room was upgraded. Quiet area.
Cons:Chilly weather
6.0 Okay
Pros:Condo could use an upgrade. Bathroom very small. Carpet in poor condition.
8.0 Great
Pros:i loved Danny! He was so awesome! Did everything he could to make our stay great! Thanks!
Cons:It was being renovated but that means it will just be better later
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Chose this location as it was very close to the beach where we were married and wanted to return to that spot with little to no difficulty.
