With tennis courts, two pools, jogging paths, and complimentary bike rentals, this waterfront hotel is a natural fit for fitness enthusiasts. Skylights, a waterfall, and a Thai theme expressed in gilt carvings and golden statues brighten the property's airy lobby. Harbor- and marina-view rooms, decorated in whites and earth tones, are available. Happy hour at Blue Wave, the on-site restaurant, is popular for the inexpensive tacos and margaritas. The hotel operates shuttle service to the airport and train station.

Just returned from a two week stay at the Best Western Island Palms and it was a wonderful stay. The staff was excellent, and there were freshly baked cookies in the lobby every afternoon at 3pm. I was in one of the newer rooms and it was huge, with a beautiful view of the Harbor. Hearing the Star Spangled Banner every morning from a nearby naval base was an added bonus. It may have been a suite but I paid the standard price. The lobby has a lovely
Indonesian decor that helps you relax just by walking through the doors. The only fault was the food in the restaurant was not always consistent, but was good more often than not.
