We usually do a vacation rental, but decided to make a change and try this non-chain hotel. Very happy with our choice! The entire experience was great, from the initial booking to our reluctant farewell.
I would recommend booking directly, if you become a member before you book, you get an immediate discount, as well as the perks of a complimentary airport pick up, great cottage location and no supplement for steak, lobster dinners.
The staff are what really make this place, and why we chose it, based on the previous reviews. From the grounds crew right up to the general manager, O'Neil who warmly greets each guest, everyone who works here really cares.
Breakfast is buffet style, which works for us. Lunch can be buffet, daily features or panini by the pool. Dinner is where the kitchen shines. Really well presented a la carte courses, that change daily. Quality spirits and wines available. Nice touches included fruit and sorbet brought around in the afternoon for a refresher.
Pools are lovely, and the beach is gorgeous. Our cottage, Sleeping Indian has an amazing view across the bay to the rock formation for which it is named. Loved it.
And should you choose, though AI, a gratuity to your server, bartender, or housekeeper is, though not expected, genuinely appreciated and never taken for granted.
Hope you enjoy your visit - we certainly did!
