Great drink prices at the bar and the bartender Will is awesome! Such a beautiful view and there is a swim up bar! We come here almost every day and it's our favorite place to relax! No bar in NMB like it! There is corn hole to play and you can grill out too! Great for kids as well!

We're there for an extended period of time and it was wonderful from day 1. Great service. Wonderful view of beach and not in the middle of the tourist area. Very relaxing with the bar at the hotel. Would stay again. Rooms were clean and the staff took care of room while gone.

This place is pretty rough, but beggars can't be choosers and when you wait til the last minute to book, this is what happens. The location was great and the outdoor tiki bar was a big plus. Could not beat being so close to the beach. This place is in need of serious renovations but the sheets were clean and...
