We are not for every one, we understand.

The pictures make the resort seem to be much nicer. The resort isn’t bad but it definitely has a lot of minor renovations and touch ups that could be done. The beach is very small and the water around it is very rocky so not really a “beach”. I could never find the complimentary breakfast that was mentioned. The restaurant is overpriced. We added on “snow crab” to my husbands steak and the crab legs were probably the size of a woman’s hand/fingers.

I really enjoyed that the resort had everything I needed so that I did not have to leave the property to have something to do. It had it all . I also enjoyed the resort having the wildlife and animals to interact with.The staff was very polite and eager to see to our needs.

Staff was very kind. The property has a vintage vibe, so kinda small. Located on the beach. Drinks at restaurant are super expensive. Problems were addressed quickly.
