Great hospitality, affordable price for private room and location near the center. Your welcome with a smile. Has a small pool and a great relaxing spot to enjoy a coffee or cold beer. The beach is just a minute walk with a spectacular view of the barrier reef.

I personally like private rooms with a hostel feel and Drift Inn fit everything I wanted. The location is walking distance to bars, restaurants, the ocean (is right out front), and anything you could want. The staff is great and they helped me with directions and had a golf cart delivered to me at the hotel. The room was clean and the water was hot. Out front there are multiple areas to sit, relax and meet other travelers. They did an amazing job of getting everyone together and organizing events so you won’t be alone...unless you want to be.
