Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Some bathrooms are showing age
  • Strict wristband and towel policies at the pool

Bottom Line

The WaterColor Inn & Resort is reminiscent of its name, with beach-y whites, blues, and light greens dominating the color scheme throughout the lobby and rooms. The inn offers an airy and relaxing atmosphere, and sits right on a beautiful private beach. It's part of a larger resort community that's packed with amenities, including four restaurants, water sports, bike rentals, and a long wooden pathway leading to the beach. While there are several pools for sunbathing, some guests complain about the wristband and strict towel policies.
