Great location and view. Common area is excellent with lawn, pool, fitness, spa, and excellent Restuarant. We stayed in a two bedroom, one bath unit. Nice but very same bedrooms. Too small to be comfortable. Great meal in the Restuarant at dinner plus breakfast on the outdoor patio was very nice.

Beach Suite had alot of offer, but again lacked what it could have...

This hotel is situated on a gorgeous piece of property. There is a wildlife habitat that is full of birds. It is a short walk from Crescent Beach and offers stunning water views. The beach is beautiful. The landscaping is well manicured. They have a restaurant, a spa and a heated pool on site. I stayed in a beach suite....
