Do we need to rent a car or golf cart? Are there a lot of restaurants near by?
My answer would be no. I stayed here back in February and there are plenty of placed in walking distance. That's probably what makes this place worth staying at the most. Modest in regards to accommodations, but excellent in terms of location to food and activities.
You really shouldn't need to rent a car, but a golf cart comes in very handy. There are many places to eat within walking distance right on the beach. The golf cart will get you to others around town.
You don't need to if you plan on staying within a ten to 15 min walk of the hotel. However if you like to explore further north and over the bridge, it's a good idea. The Truck Stop is a great place to eat and it is a very pretty drive. I had a gold cart so I could go everywhere.
Agreed. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. First morning, walk down the beach toward center of town. Breakfast at Estelles can be a lobster omelet and fried jacks. Plenty of beach places, but we like Elvi's for evening meals.
There are many restaurants in easy walking distance right up the beach. We never felt the need to rent a golf cart or a car. Being right in San Pedro is one of the big perks of not staying at the resorts at the other end of the island. We only used a taxi (golf cart) when checking in and out because of the luggage.
