Does anybody have any hotel/resort recommendations. Every place I have looked at is either booked or isn't really beachfront.

Thanks for your help.
What's you're budget? This is for April or May?

Look at Tranquility Bay... with tax it will push you a little over $900, but keep in mind it's a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath, and full kitchen. This is a more luxurious property

You could also try Ocean Pointe... a lesser of a property and not as appealing, but I think it would be fine (I've never stayed there) Again, with tax though it knocks it a little over $900. This is a one bedroom, as well, not a 2 bedroom.

What info do you want to know?

Traffic on Overseas Highway can vary depending on time of day, local festivals and any accidents that occur.

Whatever it says on Google, add 20 minutes and you should be fine.

Traffic is just very unpredictable... one road in, one road out. If something happens then you almost always have to wait for a resolution before traffic begins flowing again.
