Loved it! We spent a week in an Ocean View Apartment with a private balcony. It was SO spacious with full kitchen (microwave, blender, coffee maker), and there's a barbeque on the beach. With Kirk's across the street, having the kitchen really cut down on food costs.
The King Bed was more comfortable than my bed back home! The bathroom is off of the bedroom, so if you wanted to have a third-fourth guest on the fold-out couch, you should be aware that they would have to walk through the bedroom to go the bathroom.
There is a sandy beach with beach chairs/picnic tables (no umbrellas) that leads to a rocky shore. There is a dock with a ladder to get into the water. Snorkeling behind the property is good. We even saw an Octopus snorkeling at night with a dive light!
The cruise ships park right outside of the hotel. We really enjoyed watching them come and go each day. And the property faces west, so everyone would gather every night to watch the sunset (waiting for the green flash!).
Bus is easy to catch (right in front), and downtown is an easy walk. Route 1 or 2 takes you up SMB and then goes all the way up to Turtle Farm and/or Hell. It's $2.50 American per ride.
Our favorite restaurant nearby was Myrtle's (turn left and walk 1/2 mile) which has local food, American food, and a bar. There's also Papa John's, Thai, and an Irish Pub near Myrtle's. Across the street is an Indian Restaurant and KFC.
Only thing that might bother some people is that the property is next to a cemetery. Rose and Dudley (who live on site) said only once did a guest had an issue with the cemetery, and that most of their guests are calm, quiet people. There was no partying when we stayed, except for a couple nights of fireworks off of the beach.
Also, you should bring your own beach towels.
