    Many thanks for review Amanda. You touched on many of the things that we think make Brio unique: proximity, pool, privacy, staff. We will certainly take your suggestions into account when adding some touches to our economy rooms. Enjoy your travels!!

    Clean, safe and fun. The hotel is a run by caring volunteers who know how to serve up nice food and drinks on a budget. Expect healthy food in large servings after a long day at the beach. The owner is pretty hot, too!More

    I was at Brio for a team building/planning event and it was a great experience. The rooms were simple but nice, the attention was excellent, the staff was very helpful and accommodating to our needs and changes and the food was great.
