We stayed at the Marina and absolutely loved it! We were worried that it would be too isolated from the resort area but it actually was a nice refuge from the crowded hotels. Waking up every morning we enjoyed our coffee on the lanai while...More

Fishing is always fun when you are catching them. In any case, our experienced crew has an incredible reputation. If we could only control the bite!

I expected more from a marina that is considered "state-of-the-art". Hardly any boats and not much going on around the common areas. Marina store was average in what they offer and extremely overpriced. Cleanliness of the bathrooms is questionable!

This marina is first class and can handle any vessel from a kayak to a 200+ foot yacht. Well guarded with a nice hotel, store, bar and fueling station.
