The other reviews on Tripadvisor said it all, and the pictures on this website provide a very accurate representation of what the place looks like. And yes, it is a truly fabulous lodge. Location on the creek is fantastic and the views are simply beautiful. Our one-bedroom suite was spacious, elegant and well equipped (safe, fridge, microwave…), even if the bathroom was rather basic. The free kayaks are a wonderful idea; waters were very calm during our stay and it was such a pleasure to discover the surroundings from the sea! Direct access to the Snapper’s restaurant and to the very laid-back Turtle bar (where many locals use to go) is a big plus. The landscaped tropical gardens and the small marina are very nice and give the whole place a sort of Caribbean look and feel. The complimentary breakfast, as many have pointed out, is outstanding and having breakfast on the wonderful terrace is the best possible way to start the day. I would add that while the hotel had no vacancies left, the place never looked crowded and was very quiet (except for the noisy outdoor airco units – a frequent complaint of mine about hotels in the US). The screened porches in front of the rooms are very nice to sit and relax in the evening.
This is definitely one of the most relaxing getaway locations I’ve ever been to and I warmly recommend it to anyone.
