What to Expect

In the event that the reception staff is temporarily away from the front desk, please see the restaurant or beer and wine store staff for quick assistance. You will be requested to have a credit card on file or with you. Check in time is 4:00 PM, although your room may be ready sooner.
This is the time to request any other services such as pool towels, specific time for room refreshing, and spa services. You may also prearrange your return transportation to the ferry. Requests for late checkout may also be accommodated. Extra charges may apply.
