Guests can enjoy a poolside drink while swaying in a hammock. More energetic options include renting a bike, a jet-ski, a stand-up paddleboard, or a clear-bottom kayak. There’s free WiFi in public areas, and locally caught shrimp and stone crabs to be relished at The Stoned Crab next to the water.

Built in the 1950s, the resort oozes period charm, without stinting on mod cons. Guestrooms feature Cuban artwork, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and hammocks. The hotel lends guests colorful sarongs to relax in, and some rooms have a private beach deck or garden.
