I had a wonderful experience at the Bellwether Beach Resort. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the resort was recently renovated. The staff was amazing and accommodating. Ocean front restaurants and close enough to walk to nearby shops.

Ugh. Came for my niece’s wedding. The lobby is very nice as is the beach but although a lot of renovations were done, a lot of it comes off as cosmetic only. The bathrooms near the outdoor bar and restaurant are very bad. Whomever did the tiling job had no clue what they were doing. The really bad part - come wedding reception time, we went up to the penthouse and it was (literally) 88 degrees. A/C worked and they tried to bring out some portable units that did nothing. No shades on the windows so the sun just baked everyone. Older guests all left the reception because they could not take the heat. Felt so bad for my niece and her new husband. Food was not very good either. Everything was over seasoned with lots of herbs and salt, to the detriment of the dishes. As for our room, was ok and was clean. The bed killed my back terribly - very stiff. Don’t expect to sleep late - as soon as the sun is up, the room is very bright. There are only white shutters and no shades or blackout curtains, etc. Overall, beach nice. Beyond that, for the price I would go somewhere else.
