This was the second year we visited STX for Ironman race. The previous year we had stayed in a condo in Gallows Bay,and though it was within walking distance of town there were some things that we did not like. I debated looking for another condo in the area where there lots of condos and though the prices were less than a hotel in town, I opted for the convenience of a central location. I was nervous that it might be too noisy but after talking to Arah and Yolando on the phone several times and reading other hotel reviews, they helped me choose the perfect two, adjacent rooms on the top floor, away from the restaurants on the boardwalk. The setting is charming with the buildings connected by paths with lovely flowering bushes. The rooms were not adjoining but we could easily go back and forth and each had its own balcony. Other reviews have mentioned that most rooms have views are of parking lot, but we could see the bay even though we were furthest from the water. I recommend rooms on top floors since they have higher beamed ceilings and we never heard anyone else. The pool was just down the path and upstairs. We rarely saw anyone else there and it was never crowded. Our rooms were very clean and we had plenty of towels etc. All the staff at the front desk and the maids were friendly and helpful, Huge thanks to Yolanda and Arah for all your help and patience with my questions. Eva was also very friendly and welcoming. I was delighted with my choice and will definitely stay here again. It was convenient to shopping and restaurants - see my reviews of Savant, Rum Runners, You Are Here, Galangal, EAT at Cane Bay, and Buccaneer - but especially great for race morning since it is short walk to transition. All in a all a perfect spot and I rated it five because it was everything we needed but some might not like the fact that there is no elevator and our rooms were on third floor. The five rating does not indicate that this is an upscale resort but we are not high maintenance so the fact that bathrooms are a bit outdated was ok - rating is based on location, cleanliness, friendly staff, and easy internet access. Highly recommend.
