The focal point of this airy, modern resort-style motel a 5-minute walk from the city center is the friendly communal kitchen that overlooks the palm-lined saltwater pool and paved sun deck. It’s a great spot to cook a steak or reef fish on the free barbecue and join other guests at the big shared tables. The smallish, basic-but-neat motel rooms have painted brick walls, terra-cotta tile or carpeted floors, and new bathrooms with marble-look laminate countertops. In contrast, the eight suites, which have kitchenettes, are huge and stylish—and some of the best-value rooms in town. All rooms have a balcony or patio; some overlook the commercial buildings next door, but most face the pool. Ask about packages that include cruises and other tours.
