My room was small but nice. Breakfast was good--fresh fruit was great. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. What makes this place so fantastic is the setting. I had to shoot video because the pictures look fake. Gorgeous.

The only reason I dinged the "amenities" rating down from perfect was they didn't have snorkel flippers in my size (men's 13), so they couldn't fulfill their promise of free snorkel rental as part of my room rental.

Although this was an older motel it has been VERY well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location of our room made the noise level a bit more than I would prefer but most residents observed the quiet hours.
