“The rooms are unbelievably comfortable situated right on the Clearwater Bay, and the excellent staff at the Barefoot Bay make you feel right at home!”

“If you are going for an extended stay, request a Queen deluxe which provides more room, the pull out sofa and better kitchen, etc. All the rooms are clean and have been recently painted/upgraded. The regular Queen is nice if you just want a place to sleep for a few days (still have access to the pool and other facilities).”
