Our room did not face the ocean but the lagoon behind the hotel. We had windows but no balcony. Not sure what type it was called. I think all rooms facing the ocean had balconies. ( also facing pool as some have mentioned)

What is the smoking policy for the hotel and the town?
The hotel is non smoking, our public spaces like bar and patio areas are designated smoking areas. There is no smoking ordinance in effect for the Island, each business owners decides what they feel is best for their hotel/restaurant or bar.

They were very accommodating! I don't think it would be a bad idea to reach out to them first prior to planning your trip!
