This is a very unique hotel because it's on it's own private island. The only way to get here is by boat (about a 2 min ride) which they provide free for guest. I can't rate it excellent because it's certainly not a 5 star Ritz, nor a 4 star Marriott, and even with all the wear

There were soda machines, some chips and snacks in the Lobby. I never saw the store open at night and selection was very limited. They did have food for lunch, BBQ and it was tasty, reasonable. But, usually we ate out. We would take the ferry over and have a light salad or something. Food in town was VERY good, great selection.
