Fodor's Review

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.
