    Breakfast, location and view was excellent. The private deck was very nice to sit and read my book from. The staff were amazingly nice and cooked an awesome breakfast each morning with fresh fruit and fresh local eggs.

    The complimentary breakfast was great. The chef was very nice and made tasty food. The water was beautiful with cute fish and lovely sand. It’s straight out of a postcard.
