Honestly there loads of them. Do you want a bed and breakfast or large hotel? The only really large hotel on the island is the Marriott. It is a great place (we stayed there for our wedding).

I am not sure about the brunch menu as we were there for a late afternoon lunch. The view is outstanding, maybe calling ahead will give you an idea of the brunch menu items.

You will have to ask them, but I know they have private dining area as we saw a large group come in the same time we arrived.
