    Right on the Beach!

    BIGGEST PRO: The best thing about our room was that it was right on the beach! I loved waking up and being able to walk right out to the beach. BIGGEST CON: The hot water in the shower would turn off in about five minutes. I didn’t enjoy that. Overall, I would stay here again, but I would choose a bigger room. Very relaxing stay!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    There is nothing I 'did not like' about the property. They have done a great job repairing the recent hurricane damage. The only negative I can think of is that on occasion, some bad smells wafted over from the salt lagoon across the street but this is not the property's fault. The cabins are fantastic. Every one is unique and has its own charms. Also, quiet...so very quiet at night, typically beginning about 9 PM. It was fantastic to have a clean, beautiful beach literally a 2 minute walk from our room. Hot and cold water in showers; water that is filtered so you can drink it although we still mostly drank bottled water. Appreciated the washing machine and dryer and did a few loads, so next time will bring fewer clothes. When they say you are own your own when staying, they mean it....so plan what groceries to buy before you get there and check local store hours. We used a grocery about 10 minutes up the road: prices mostly comparable to Stateside. Why I gave a neutral for amenities...not a negative, but just a reflection that you are responsible for all your beverages, snacks, meals, so plan. There is a bar and restaurant next door at the Sandcastle...decent food and typical resort bar prices. Will we return? Yes. But if you enjoy being catered to and having lots of amenities, this is NOT the place for you. If you like quiet, easy going, beautiful weather and beaches and enjoy fending for yourself most of the time, this is definitely a place I recommend.

    Thisbis one of tbe best properties we have stayed at. It is very secluded and quiet. The beach is amazing and is literallybfeet from the back porch of the cottage. We stayed in Cruzan Cottage and it was amazing. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The bar/restaurant next door is incredible. Be sure to make ressevations. I can't say enough good things about this little place!

    The view! Cannot beat opening your hotel door and watching the waves for hours. Check in was a breeze, the woman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. Housekeeping was hit or miss, she only came once during our 5 night stay. All in all, great stay and would recommend.

    The staff was awesome and very helpful. We really enjoyed speaking with Nikki and Carmen. Only downside was that the beach was not as secluded as we thought as there is a public access just to the west of the property. Other than that we had a great time there.

    We stayed at the cocktail cottage. It was upstairs but right on the beach. Our door opened up to the ocean. It was newly remodeled and such lovely colors. Niki was great! She was our cottage contact.
