    The hotel is walking distance to restaurants and shopping and early morning strolls on the Boardwalk are great! The combination gorgeous, beach, pool and Ssa facilities makes this hotel a place to come back to. - Tripadvisor Reviewer October 2016
    It was beautiful walking through the hotel grounds as they had two resident pet parrots named Sunsine and Chance on display in the gardens and also had backlit palm trees which appeared even more beautiful at night. - Tripadvisor Reviewer October 2016
    This is a gem of a hotel. It's not close to the noisy and busy Art Deco district. If you're looking for a quiet and cozy floribbean style, then this is the hotel for you. - Yelp Reviewer October 2016
