We had a wonderful time. The room and grounds were well taken care of and clean. Howie is a gem and Linda was amazing helping me out after I left items by accident. We will definitely be back. We tried to stay an additional night but they were completely booked, we weren’t interested staying anywhere else.

We stayed here for 2 nights at one of the Beachfront rooms. The place is well kept. The room was clean and tidy. The lady at the reception was sweet and informed us well. We had a happy stay and will definitely book this again on our next trip.

Couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing place to spend a couple nights after our wedding. Oceanfront access, amazing pool and very spacious and clean rooms. Laid back for sure. Also it feels very communal amongst all of the guests. Special thank you to Linda the property manager for upgrading us on our honeymoon trip ♥️
