Fantastic hotel with a beautiful location
Fantastic hotel with a beautiful location and great service. The food is really good and the staff are friendly and professional. The views across the bay from the sheltered sunbathing spots and incredibly relaxing. Rooms are a little small and the gym could use an update.

Beautiful Hotel and Setting - Skip the Food
The location is absolutely peaceful and beautiful and the calm water in the bay meant easy paddleboarding and safe swimming. The hotel is also beautiful, and we loved sitting on our balcony watching the sunset. It would have been nice to sit there with tea and coffee in the morning, but unfortunately, there are no beverage facilities in the room. Sadly, the pool is barely heated and there is no hot tub, so we weren't able to get hang out in the pool very much. The real downside was the food. Breakfast was ok, but I wish the scrambled eggs hadn't been half raw. Dinner was medeocre, at best. It really made me wish there were other restaurants within walking distance.
