"This hotel gets 5 VERY ENTHUSIASTIC "SEA" STARS from us!!When I read reviews about this place and saw pictures,I was excited. However, none of them really did it any justice.I'm a person who appreciates details..so here it is!The hotel is at the end of the boardwalk area and then up one block.If you have large or heavy luggage you might want to arrange a golf cart or taxi ahead of time to get you to the hotel.The walk over is not bad,but the little hike up the hill and then the stairs could be an issue for those with walking challenges.We were greeted with smiles, sweet little personal touches, covid-19 upgrades and information!We were offered information about transportation around the island,the local grocery store and then we were personally excorted to our room so that we could be shown the covid-19 safety upgrades that had been made to the rooms.The bathroom has a UV disinfecting light and there was a disinfecting box on the nightstand next to the bed(you place an item inside of it and UV light breaks disinfects the item).Then of course,there's the sweet charm of the place!The room was a good size,the bath tub made for an awesome bubble bath, there was even a little loofa!The morning continental breakfast was simple(yogurt, fruit cup, boiled eggs,pastries,juice...)and they served beer and wine in the evening.All of these we enjoyed from our GORGEOUS balconcy.Our room was located at the back of the hotel and the view was still breathtaking!We will definitely return!"
