I had a great stay. The place was super clean, quiet, and well maintained. The staff was very friendly. It's right on the Waterfront so that you can watch Ships Come and Go during the day. I enjoyed every moment of my stay. I did have one minor issue with a hot water and it was fixed within hours. They also had three or four restaurants of good quality to pick from if you were just too tired to go out to eat. All in all a great stay.

Service here is always incredible! We did have only one negative experience with a terribly slow and inattentive waiter when dining outside one evening. I immediately brought this infraction to the attention of management. Yet otherwise, Waterfront Insular was as always superb!
