“Enjoyed Our Pre-Cruise Loft!!!”
We stayed here before our cruise with as a group of four friends and had a great time!... We really enjoyed the tiki bar -- the rum buckets were great! Live music was also nice on Friday night. There were quite a few family friendly amenities and the property was right next to the beach. Would stay again!
