You can definitely find better hotels: paper thin walls, suites with a king size bed... and a twin size bed, fridges that don't work, no phones in the rooms (or at least in my room) and whirlpool controls caked with mildew.
Stellar service and their suites have whirlpool jet tubs in the bathroom that accommodate two with ease. Big flat screen television in the room, and plenty of cooking accessories that were pretty clean. I can not emphasize enough how helpful the staff was there and their suggestions made the great, even though the room was less so.
I had purchased a package that included two nights, transportation to and from the island, museum tickets, a movie, botanical garden tickets, bicycle rental, and mini-golf. The package was absolutely worth it.
