Incredible spot! Ocean is incredible! Can't beat the location. Food was average at best yet pricey. Not sure why the pool wasn't open when other Falmouth resorts have pools open. Hard-working staff on the beach!

Loved the pool area and the bar! Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Everyone was very nice.

Too much money for almost nothing...neither the breakfast or housekeeping....
