Fodor's Review

Nature meets seaside chic at this boutique property, the crown jewel of the area's latest—and largest—planned communities. Rooms are done in seashell tones with sea-blue comforters and accents; stylish armoires and desks look as natural and unfinished as driftwood. Dune-level bungalows have private courtyards with outdoor showers, whereas upper rooms have huge balconies and walk-in showers with windows overlooking the gulf so you can see the sea while you scrub—delightful!

Standard rooms come with a king-size bed and a queen sleeper sofa, but consider one of the three rotunda rooms for something larger and more spectacular. Included in your room rate is one hour of canoeing, one hour of tennis, and daily breakfast. An extra $35 per day affords you a complete beach setup—two chairs, umbrella, and towels.
