  • "Beautiful Wedding Venue"

    A dream beach wedding

    My Daughter and Son-in-law had their dream beach wedding here last week. Beautiful. The staff was very nice and very hard working in making sure everything went smoothly. The beach and pool area are well maintained and a relaxing place to kick back for hours at a time.
    I think they said they would be putting TVs in the rooms soon. I liked not having a TV. We were up in the morning and enjoying the complimentary coffee over looking the ocean. Food and drinks were available right there too. The breeze off the ocean made exploring the island by foot very enjoyable. An excellent get away location.


    5 out of 5 stars

    Small hotel, up on a ridge that overlooks the bay on one side and the ocean on the other. White sand beach that is never crowded because there are no other hotels. Water with 30-50 ft. visibility; reef is 30 yards from shore. Good number of small fish. Occasional big ray or shark. Walk to everywhere in town. Plus a pool and pool bar manned by Gary and food served by Jeannie. Indoors is another bar and a gourmet restaurant. Ask concierge Candice if you want to know anything about the island. This place is hard to beat!

  • "Dream Vacation"


    San Diego, California

    We spent a week at the beach front cottages and it was a dream come true. We woke up every morning to the beautiful blue water splashing against the sand just outside the door. The room was very very nice Kitchen and beautiful bathroom. The food at the restaurant was excellent. The drinks at the beach bar Hmmmm. Breakfast at beach front wonderful and the staff was AAA+.
