We stayed here with our two teenagers for 5 nights at New Years and couldn't have been more happy with our stay. The rooms are comfortable and equipped with everything you need. The location is stellar as it is on the beach and the lapping waves make drifting into a deep slumber quite easy to do. The rooms face East so morning sunrises are a pleasant ritual. The rooms have both fans and AC, which we used several times when the breeze stopped. My wife and I are gourmands and we could not believe how good the food was. John is a very creative chef and was accommodating in cooking up a Barracuda for dinner I caught on a guided fishing trip set up by Ellen.
The hotel is about 10 minutes or so to town so it was handy to have a car. We heard several travelers complain about the high cost of a cab so be prepared to bring some coin for this if you don't have one as it is a fun place to go visit. We had a hard time however prying ourselves away from the cooking here however as the meals were simply awesome.
