8/10 Very good

Loved the hotel! Great breakfast, friendly staff and very clean! The only minor complaint is location. About a mile walk to the island. No trolley or golf carts over the bridge so walking or the monkey bud are the only options unless you have a car. The monkey bud is awesome however it doesn’t start running until noon.

8/10 Very good

Check in was quick. Agent was friendly & informative. Especially w/ detailed specific prices. Bartenders were quick & nice. Happy hour 3-6, decent array of cocktails but food limited but all was good. Property only 2 years old, some of outside wood furniture weathered already. All the chairs w/ low backs are not comfortable. Pillows were awesome. Overall good stay. Pictures on their website are Truly like the room received. I'd return if in the area again.
