Stayed here for 2 nights in September and loved it. You take a 5 minute boat ride out to the island. The rooms were great with most having excellent views, the food & buffet options were great. Will go back someday...I hope.

Great views of the town. There is a path around the island and it is lovely walk. We watched the sun set. You can go over and swim and lie around, but you have to pay the hotel to use their beach.
