We stayed on the Marina side with a balcony which was terrific. The bay side is nice too, it depends on your preferences. Not all rooms have balconys. The property is beautiful and a quite stay with a park across the street for enjoyment. The pool area can have a few more kids at one than the other. The restaurants on the island are good for seafood. Other great ones are not that far away too.The fridge in rooms are a bit small if this is an important element. Electrical outlets are plenty and this is a big factor for me. I liked the sensor lighting in the bathrooms. Loved the bikes they had available to use for free. Parking costs $10 day though if you park on property. You can park across the street at the park too, for free. I would recommend this as a great get away, spending a bit more but worth it and plan to try it again.
