The Islander Resort Review

While the general waterfront layout here (including the retro sign) retains a 1950s feel, the decor is modern yet comfortable, with white cottage-style furnishings, elegant fabrics, and sunny yellow bedrooms. Private screened porches lead to a coral-shell oceanfront beach with palm trees bending in the sea breeze. Families snap up suites in the oceanfront Beach House; couples looking for more privacy head to rooms set back from the beach. The pools—one saltwater, one freshwater—win raves, as do the full kitchens. A 200-foot dock, lighted at night, plus shuffleboard, basketball, and volleyball add to the resort feel.
