We loved the outdoor beach restaurant Bongos. The hotel itself is old and not very clean. The rooms are not cleaned but every 4 days. It wasn’t very clean when we checked in.

The Bellwether Resort was great, before we even arrived the concierge sent a text with a ton of info on everything from free beach rides to restaurants that were walkable. Bongo's (the beach bar/grill) has good food and drinks along with live music. Spinners Restaurant at the top of the resort has exceptional food, the steaks were really, really good, but everything our table had was great. All of the service personnel were friendly and helpful. The free beach cabanas/umbrellas saved us money and we were always able to get access no matter what time we went to the beach. As you can tell, we enjoyed our 4 night stay. The only negative of the resort is the small pool, if it were larger, this place would have been perfect. It still gets 5 Stars from me.

We had a great stay. The staff was very accommodating, hotel was clean and very beautiful. The AC in our room was FABULOUS especially with the humidity outside. There were several weddings and wedding parties over the weekend, however our room seemed to be well sound proofed and all live music and parties shut down promptly at 10pm. Bed was comfy, amenities were great, and the ocean was beautiful. Would stay again!

This was my first stay at this resort and when I got into my room, there was a small issue so I told the front desk and Jaye was very apologetic and she ended up upgrading my room and gave me some lunch vouchers for the inconvenience. It made me feel like they care about their guests. I didn’t expect them to do that. I also loved how you walk out into the beach and there are food places and activities to do right there so you don’t have to go far it’s all walking distance. The views from the hotel are also incredible. Overall, the experience was great and I would stay here again.
