Stayed 2 nights in room #7 at the end (2 queen beds). The shower head in this room has a piercing spray that we could not adjust to make softer, so it was a bit painful. Water pressure was strong! Very clean room, nice private patio with outdoor shower and path leading to the pool and bar area. The pool was great, lots of people were using it each day – very convenient walk up area to bar so you could eat/drink by the pool. There was a large gas firepit with 6 Adirondack chairs that we used both nights, which was very relaxing. The bar has a nice outdoor area out back and it got pretty busy Sat and Sun nights. There is a path that leads to their boat dock and the bayside, and we saw numerous boats coming and going, so this is a very popular local hangout. Prices were very fair for drinks and food as well. This place is very comfy and good for un-fussy people. It is nicer than it looks when you pull in.
Two security things to be aware of: the front doors to the rooms lock automatically, so if you have your key inside the room and you are out by your car and the door shuts, you are locked out of your room. The other issue is with the sliding glass door. There is no way to lock it from the outside when you go out the back to the pool, so your room essentially remains open via the sliding glass door. You could keep that door locked from the inside and just use the front door and get to the pool through the bar, but that is inconvenient. There is also no one watching who goes where once you leave the pool area and head back towards each individual room path. We had no problems, I am just mentioning it as an FYI for others.
