Love that it is ocean front. The room could have bee cleaner. The resort restaurant is only open Thursday through a Sunday. That was disappointing.

Far from the crowd of people and businesses

Views of the ocean were beautiful and the staff were very nice. They could use some new mattresses though.

My sister & I came here for a quick, one night get-together. We chose this location for the added room space. The sitting room was perfect for our late night chat & we'd leave the balcony open to listen to the waves. Our room was ready early & we were able to check in early which was a plus. The front desk associate was attentive & helpful with local recommendations. At the time of our stay, the hotel restaurant was only open for breakfast & lunch & not at all Tuesday & Wednesday, though they offered free breakfast items on thos mornings. We ate lunch there & I'd recommend the grilled shrimp tacos. This facility is at the end of the road, literally. For this reason, the beach isn't packed & it's easy to find a quiet spot for yourself & great for beach walking. This location was perfect for us, however, it's far from other amenities. It's a pretty long walk to Johnnie's Pier (bring $2 per person for access if you want to walk/fish there), shopping or other restaurants. This wasn't our priority, but for people wanting to be able to walk out of a property & easily access food & shopping, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. You can tell they have been making updates little by little. The room had newer flooring & furniture, but the bathrooms could use some updating. Having 2 bathrooms was a major plus. Another note, at our time of stay, the hot tub was closed, which was a let down.

great location, oceanfront rooms but room wasn't clean, restaurant had limited hours, no info was given on area attractions or restaurants

Great view!

The property is beautiful and the beach is outstanding.

The location is optimum located at the extreme end of the island and beach access is stellar.

I love the view and layout of the rooms

The room was a cute apartment style hotel.

Beautiful views of the Atlantic! Unit needed some cosmetic touches.

This was one of the worst placing I ever stayed! Our room was filthy! The bathroom was full of black mold(I have pictures) The only thing that was acceptable here was looking at the ocean and the staff was very good with what they had to work with!!! Will never come back here or recommend!

Really enjoyed our stay and will return!!

Property was very nice. No dishwasher in the units so if you are there for a while it is not convenient. Parking lot should be better lit!!! There was no outside service for drinks or food on Thursday and Friday, not sure why.

Views are nice

We really enjoyed our stay! The room/ condo was very up to date and modern. Kitchen was well equipped and the view was incredible
