My husband and I stayed here with for a 4-day vacation. The beach and pool area were very nice. Tropical setting, nice amenities, actually quite delightful. The staff was friendly, attentive, and excellent. The room was typical Holiday Inn, very familiar to business travelers of the past thirty years. However, the room was obviously freshly painted, equipped with an excellent...

The location was great-swimming pool and beach-resident alligator not visible-several turtles fun to see close-beach chairs set up each day were very good. Lovely, clean property- rooms small. A/C rather noisy- toilets were midget size-no hand rails in shower-view of drive way ??? The Starfish restaurant was very attractive-food was good- noise quotient horrendous- hard to hear waitress never mind...

Great beach chairs, umbrellas and good coffee. Excellent location! Maybe not a resort but a place to relaxe enjoy the beach, room was comfortable and very quiet...we were just next to the restaurant but did not have a chance to go eat there...Probably next time.

Looking for value on the island then this is it. Relatively affordable stay with three kids- stayed in the double queen bed suite. Drawbacks- pool is a little small, and if your room is at front of hotel, then it's a little trek to pool and beach which is at the rear. Other than that it was a good value.

This hotel is right on the water. The pictures showing a water view are misleading. There appears to be only 4 rooms with a water view. The staff were mostly excellent. The renovations in 2012 spruced it up, but, they did cut corners on the bathroom/vanity area and the bedding. Great location and value for right on the water. Take...
