Hidden resort service fee of $40 per night which had to be paid at checkout. Wish I had known this when booking on hotels.com

Amazing resort and beaches
WaterColor is a charming community resort and Inn with restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Upscale dinning, more shopping, and a Publix are within a short drive or Uber. We rented a car for the week but other than driving to and from the airport, we used it once to go out to eat at Cafe 30a. Uber would have been sufficient for our stay. The turndown service at 8:30pm was nice and they bring you cookies! The adult pool was relaxing and the resort was on a beautiful stretch of white sand beaches. The entire experience was beyond our expectations and we definitely will explore more on the complimentary bikes when we go back.

Great hotel - fantastic service
Great hotel - fantastic service. Rooms were large and very comfortable. Great view of the ocean. Everyone who worked at the hotel was very happy to see us and to be helpful. It was a wonderful experience and I'd recommend to anyone.

Staff was excellent and attentive to guests.. only thing I would change would be to include the resort fee in the price and have it all paid for upfront
