Positive Reviews

Relaxing beach holiday location

West Wind Inn is just steps to the white sand beach, a very relaxing and scenic spot where you can watch beautiful sunsets. It's a great location for beach walks, shelling and to observe nature. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas and just sit and lounge or easily rent bikes, a great way to explore the area. The onsite restaurant offers good breakfast and dinner and the pool area and bar has a laid back, beach vibe.

Great pool and bar area

The hotel has a fun, welcoming atmosphere. The pool and pool area is large and attractive. Additionally, the poolside bar is a lot of fun, especially happy hour on Fridays. It's also good for families, with a small kids pool for young children. Additionally, staff is very friendly and helpful.

Well equipped, inviting rooms

Rooms are clean, comfortable and provide everything you need for a complete stay. They have balconies you can sit out on and kitchenettes, a real perk if you don't want to dine out every meal. The property overall is well maintained and inviting.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

The rooms at West Wind Inn are not large but are fairly well equipped. The bathrooms in some however, are very small and difficult to share.

A bit dated

The hotel appearance is a bit dated but overall, everything is clean and the grounds are well maintained.

Fee for beach equipment

There is a charge to rent beach chairs and umbrellas and it's rather expensive; you would expect to be included in the overall cost. Also, if it's busy season, they often rent out before you can even get access to them.
