We love this resort. It is always great to see the care that they put towards customer service, ground upkeep and overall presentation. This island resort is our favorite with the relaxed environment and the accessibility to walk to shops and dining choices!
Great property. Beautiful ocean view! Very nice pool and jacuzzi. Rentals onsite for beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. Someone is on site to get you signed up for tours. They have priority seating with some venues. It's a very convenient location with shops and restaurants in walking distance.
