Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Seven time winner of the Traveller's Choice Award for 2018, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2009! Thank you to all of our wonderful guests who stayed here and wrote a review. We received the Certificate of Excellence in 2017. Our small beach-front hotel is a few steps from the ocean. Not an all-inclusive hotel. Our guests feel like it is their place “on the beach”. We have a covered BBQ and free use of boogie boards. Our pool is open 24 hours. Fully-equipped kitchens. Daily maid service. Laundry available. Screened upper and lower windows along with 2 ceiling fans in standard rooms. Deluxe has two AC units, TV and larger appliances. Great place for families and couples. Small enough to rent the entire hotel for birthday parties, retreats or small weddings.
