This hotel has the potential to be amazing. It has the most incredible location with the very special touch of getting a boat from the mainland over to the hotel. The rooms and public areas are very dated and in need of a complete overhaul. Breakfast was not included, so we paid $13 for a mediocre buffet, only to be...

My husband and me were at the Fishtail resort on the 31st evening.
