Highly recommend this resort! The staff is so wonderful, they are very helpful and genuinely nice. The security made us feel extra taken care of, they made sure we were safe at all times, made sure we were happy and were nice to talk to. Such a quiet and beautiful resort, if you’re looking for something like this, look no further. Stay here!

Idle awhile is a beautiful property located right on the beach. It couldn’t be more conveniently located. Mini mart across the street and chicken spot. The food at the bar is just ok for the price … I’d recommend venturing out for food. More bang for your buck and better food ! Tge fan didn’t work on our balcony which was a bummer but The rooms are beautiful and the staff is lovely. Would definitely return .

I wasn't sure we picked the right place after driving by all the big fancy resorts. However after seeing our room and the beach we were sold. The staff and facility was amazing and we had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable experiences of our life. We pray we get the chance to stay here again..
