Gracing the halls are black and white photos of the Kennedys, Royal family, and other dignitaries bringing to life the decades of history that this resort has seen. We stayed in...

This was a getaway long weekend for my wife and I and our first time here. The Resort was outstanding. Beautiful lobby, great oceanfront bar, meticulously maintained grounds, and very good dining options. The Sugar Mill is the best meal here. The Fern Spa is excellent. The beach was not at all crowded and is beautiful--absolutely no hustling for chairs....
