Highs & Lows

  • The hotel has a signature, exclusive scent (it’s called Tropical Chic) that can only be purchased at the property. It’s all over in forms of sprays, mists and candles…it’s alluring from the moment you get there!

  • Their lunch menu was filled with light fare that’s perfect for a beach setting. Think fresh crudité with a variety of dips and mahi-mahi burgers.

  • I have never seen more amenities in a hotel bathroom. There were the basics plus branded bath salts, hair masks, Chapstick and body scrubs.

  • The pool is a huge plus as the ocean can get rough, so it's not ideal for swimming all the time.

  • Wonderful, 5-star service. It’s a small hotel so the staff become familiar faces and remember you.

  • A bit removed from town so you’ll be driving around a lot if you want some more action.
