5 Star all the way. Staff courteous & kind.Excellent breakfast & close walk down stairs beach.

Our stay started with an upgrade and that set the tone for our 3-day stay. We spent each afternoon watching the ocean from our cabana (love the private patio,). Staff are attentive, and all of the details are managed so well. I recommend the Oasis Spa and Afternoon Tea. They Oyster Box was the second of four destinations on our vacation and has set a very high standard for our other destinations to meet.
