Right on the waterfront and a five-minute walk from the town center, the property has 139 air-conditioned rooms with balconies that take in views of the busy harbor, citrus groves, and moored boats. Inside the hotel lobby, the soft Mediterranean colors echo shades of the beach and ocean. Studio suites each have a kitchenette, but all rooms come with mini-bars and satellite television. The outdoor swimming pool is outlined by shaded loungers and a pool-side café (open during summer). For buffet-style dining, there's breakfast and dinner at Elinda Restaurant in the lobby.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
