I do know this: It is about a 15/20 minute walk to Kirk’s from there. Seven mile beach, a 30 second stroll away is absolutly beautiful. They have a great bar on premises called Stingers (great luau’s…) One of the best things about Comfort Suites is it’s right across the street from Coconut Joe’s, one of the most fun places on GC. Great breakfasts, too. (See the “Restaurants” thread.) Hope this is of some help.
Do you have to cross the street to get to the beach???
How does one get to the beach from the hotel (ie: a path???).
How is the beach there???
How is the water and the snorkeling in front there???
Do they have a restaurant??? If so, how is the food/menu???
Can we walk to Kirk’s…Is it very far???
What are some good/ local food restaurants in that area???
In walking distance:
Comfort Suites is close to many shops, restaurants and attractions. You will find all the best ones listed in Activity Guide, along with many others that are well worth driving to.
You are in for a wonderful vacation.
The Marriott is also right next door with water sports and a nice restaurant as well!
Enjoy yourself. We have stayed in that section of SMB for years and LOVE it!
We stayed at Comfort Suites in May. It is very nice. AND they have FREE continental breakfast every day and it is good. Not just donuts and coffee….they offer cereals, breads, bagels, waffle maker, fresh fruit.
They have beach towels available for checkout – no charge – so don’t lug them with you from home.
Joe mentioned that watersports are not offered at C.S. beach, but they are offered next door at the Marriott. Also, C.S. is only about a five minute walk from the Royal Palms, where they have a two story beach bar and live music in the evenings (check current schedule for days).
Don’t miss Coconut Joe’s across the street. You can make a meal out of their appetizer menu!!!
You are going to have a wonderful trip!
*Royal Palms has live music Thurs. – Sat. nights (as of 2-3 weeks ago)
* The luau show at Comfort Suites is just on Wed. nights even though you may read that it is offered 2 nights a week! If I remember correctly it is $20. for adults and $10 for children or something in that range.
* Be careful making local cell phone calls/calls at Comfort Suites hotel as the charge is very expensive. Use the pay phone in the lobby!!!
* Gas station is in walking distance (left out of the parking lot-5 or so minutes walk up the road) carries phone cards to the U.S. – also good place to buy COLD bottles of water!!
