    Testimonial 01

    Island Hopper is a wonderful hotel across the street from a wonderful beach, with brand new rooms and friendly staff. The rooms are spacious, with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. It was nice to be able to control the room temperature with the mini split and ceiling fan. The shower was nice with hot temperatures and strong water pressure. The memory foam bed was extremely comfortable. I saw the property when it was Green Banana Paper, and the transformation has been amazing. If you want an affordable place with local expertise to help you around the island, book your room now.
