          Is there overnight boat docking?
          2 May 2017|

          Response from Cait L | Reviewed this property |
          I believe the dock is under management through the boat rental company and Nauti-Cat Cruises, however there is a marina just down the water only a short walk away.

          There's a path from the hotel that takes you to a spot close to an underpass where I saw several fishermen.

          What is the parking situation like? I've heard that you only offer valet parking at a fee? Is this true? I would like to be able to park my car myself and go to it when/if I need to. Thanks.
