Beautiful spacious 2 bedroom villas, many with views of the ocean from their balconies. Deluxe accommodations with multiple pools, hot tubs, swings, hammocks. Family and children's activities available. Located on the beach. Within a short walk on the beach of a shopping center with a variety of restaurants, shops, groceries.

This Marriott is right on the ocean. The units are very spacious and don't leave out anything. Restaurants within walking distance. Bike rental and miles of off road easy trails around the island.👍👍👍

Our condo inside looked brand new and... More
