Sapphire Beach Condominium Resort Review

A beautiful half-mile-long white-sand beach is the real ace here, because accommodations can be hit-or-miss, depending on whether you book with a private condo owner (hit) or the management company (miss). There's a weathered-wood look to the outside of the buildings that translates to the same on the inside of some units. The property is nicely landscaped on the ocean side, but away from the beach is what may someday be a convention center, marina office, and shopping complex but that at this writing is just a big grassy spot occupied by the odd car. Food service is limited, although there are several good restaurants in Red Hook, a five-minute drive or shuttle ride from the resort, or 15-minute walk on a busy road.
