Fodor's Review

Palm trees, sea-grape trees, pastel cottages, and a tiki on the Gulf set the scene at this quiet beachside vacation spot. Rooms and efficiencies in the main building are modestly furnished, with bright cobalt-blue-and-white interiors, and have balconies or patios and a partial view of the Gulf. Single-story cottages are named for fruits—apricot, kiwi, raspberry, and so on—and are painted appropriately on the outside. The pool area is small but has a handicap lift, which is an unusual but welcome addition for guests with disabilities.
